Knots Landing Photo Vault

Welcome to the KNOTS LANDING Photo Vault!

DECEMBER 2003:  Hundreds of pics added!!!



As you may know, Knots Landing was actually born prior to Dallas. David Jacobs had a vision for a show about four married couples and the struggles they encountered. CBS wanted a saga, so he came up with Dallas. But...with the success of Dallas, Knots Landing was born. Spinning off Lucy's parents, Gary and Valene as one of the four couples he thought up, the show began in 1980. Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Mary Crosby and Charlene Tilton all made appearances, but Knots soon became a show where Dallas characters did not fit. They were too big, and did not fit the format, at least in the first few years.
