THE OPENING THAT COULD HAVE BEEN

We all love the opening title sequence to our series.  Will Meugniot and Larry Houston created it, storyboarded it, and, with Sidney Iwanter, supervised Ron Wasserman’s amazing creation of the title theme music.  It really works.  What few people know is that there was a time when we all thought that there would need to be narration during the opening titles.  Below is a draft I received from the would-be narrator, with some initial notes on it.  Luckily we all gave the idea a second thought and talked Margaret Loesch into scrapping the narration in favor of simple music and images.  Enjoy:
