Growing Up Brady is a television movie based on the 1992 autobiography written by actor Barry Williams with Chris Kreski, Growing Up Brady: I Was a Teenage Greg.

It first aired 21 May 2000 in the United States on NBC-TV, and was released on DVD in 2004.

The movie is a slightly fictionalized tale about the production of the 1969-1974 ABC sitcom The Brady Bunch, on which Williams played teenager Greg Brady, with backstage dramas among the cast and the show's producer.


Scenes not like the book

In his book, Williams writes that he first kissed McCormick in Hawaii, rather than in a limousine bringing them home from a Who concert in Los Angeles. The flirting between McCormick and Williams whilst filming for "A Room at the Top" (episode 94) happened a few months before the Hawaii episodes and was boosted for the TV movie. Although in the movie Eve Plumb's character is unfazed when a security guard stumbles upon her and Christopher Knight making out in a prop car on the Paramount Pictures back lot, Knight has said Plumb was "mortified" and started to cry. Also a scene where Williams' agent tells him that The Brady Bunch had been canceled is changed somewhat. Instead of drinking a bottle of Bourbon, he is drinking a bottle of Scotch.
