Everwood: An Oral History
It was a wonderful life in Everwood, Colorado.
When writer Greg Berlanti first pitched the story of Everwood — a family drama about Manhattan neurosurgeon Dr. Andy Brown, who uproots his son and daughter to a small town after his wife dies — the reaction was that it seemed like a modern-day version of a Jimmy Stewart movie. “I told them that I thought it was the closest thing to Frank Capra I’d ever seen,” recalls Treat Williams, who played the good doctor, in reference to the director of It’s a Wonderful Life. “It was just a beautiful pilot.”
