CODE RED - Original production script from the 1980/81 television series about L.A. firefighters BONANZA star Lorne Greene played Battalion Chief Joe Rorchek, who specialized in arson investigations.
Andrew Stevens and Sam J. Jones played his sons, also firefighters. Julie Adams played his wife. Martina Deignam played another young
firefighter. Created by Lawrence Heath. Irwin Allen Productions in association with Columbia Pictures Television.
EPISODE: Although "All That Glitters" is on the script, this episode underwent a title change to "The Land of Make-Believe." Not surprisingly, the episode involves moviemaking, specifically safety issues at a Hollywood studio (Columbia Ranch filled in as the setting for the ficticious "Gorman Studios"). It first aired on November 29, 1981. I do not know how closely this script matches the finished episode.
