Big Love Preview
Big Love ran from March 2006 to March 2011 in Australia. Bill Paxton played the patriarch of a conservative Mormon family in modern-day Utah, with Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloë Sevigny, and Ginnifer Goodwin playing his three wives.
The drama follows the family’s existence in and out of the public eye in their Salt Lake City suburb, as well as their ties to a local fundamentalist compound.
Season 1 opens with a look at the changing institution of marriage through the eyes of one unusual family. Bill Henrickson, a hardware store owner and practising polygamist, struggles to fulfil the emotional, romantic, and financial demands of his three wives and seven kids while living together in their family home.
With the goal of providing a “fair, non-judgmental representation of polygamy in America,” Olsen and Scheffer spent nearly three years studying the show’s premise. Familial relationships, according to Olsen, were crucial to the series’ plot, combining family fondness with conflicts. “I think what keeps an audience coming back for more is that combustion, managing that combination of sensations.”
The United Effort Brotherhood (UEB), a fictitious fundamentalist organization in the series, is actually based on the historic United Effort Plan, which was created by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS) in the state of Utah in 2005. The FLDS is one of the most well-known polygamist organizations, claiming to be the rightful heir of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which abolished polygamy in 1890.
Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer, who also acted as executive producers, developed the idea of Big Love. The series stars Amanda Seyfried, Grace Zabriskie, Daveigh Chase, Matt Ross, Mary Kay Place, Bruce Dern, Melora Walters, and Harry Dean Stanton all give strong supporting performances.
