In Fresno, California, the once-wealthy Kensington family's raisin-growing empire has fallen on hard times. They are led by widowed matriarch Charlotte, who is locked in a deadly power struggle with rival raisin magnate Tyler Cane.
Although this mini-series plays it for laughs, the raisin industry is in fact known for being competitive, with a small number of players fighting over limited market shares. The New York Times reported, for example, that the wildly successful "California Raisins" commercial campaign ended in part because of squabbles over licensing and profits.
These grapes taste like Fresno!
Later re-aired in a trimmed down version with a laugh track added (apparently in the belief that early audiences didn't realize that it was supposed to be a comedy).
