  • The reason for the odd season 6

    7.5
    After watching all 6 seasons of 77 Sunset Strip, I was curious why the program turned very dark with only Stu Bailey in season 6. After some research, it turns out that Roger Smith, who played Jeff Spencer, was diagnosed with a blood clot on the brain and was told to stop acting at the end of season 5. The producers decided to cancel the show since one of the main characters wouldn't be available. Apparently Jack Webb bought the rights to the show and signed Efrem Zimbalist Jr. to star in it. He moved Bailey's office to a non-descript building no where near 77 Sunset Strip, but kept him based in Los Angeles. It apparently didn't catch on with the viewing public and was cancelled after 1 season.
