COMPLETE RAGS TO RICHES SERIES DVD Set

Nick Foley (Joseph Bologna), the millionaire owner of Foleys Frozen Foods, is a street-wise New Jersey-born businessman with a playboy lifestyle. In the TV movie pilot which launched the series, Foley attempts to develop a family man image by bringing a group of six orphaned girls to live in the mansion in Bel Air where he lives with his butler, John Clapper (Douglas Seale). He does this to help seal a business deal and does not intend to keep them there permanently. But his plans change when he grows fond of the girls, and he and ends up adopting them.

The adjustment is huge on both sides, as the girls acquire a father with no parenting experience. Having spent the past few years in a run down children's home, the girls now find themselves in the lap of luxury. The series follows the trials and tribulations of the girls and a man who has previously never loved anyone but himself and often struggles to cope with his new family.

In the pilot for the series, Foley takes in a group of six girls. However in the subsequent episodes of the show, Foley has adopted five girls – Rose (aged 17), Diane (aged 16), Marva (aged 15), Patti (aged 14) and Mickey (aged 8). The sixth girl, Nina, appears only in the pilot (after the pilot was made, it was decided that six children was too many for the series cast, so Nina was written out with the explanation that she had been reunited
with her birth mother).

The series differed from regular comedy-dramas in that the cast would frequently burst into song to help explain their feelings or move along the plot. Each episode therefore contained at least two music videos, most of them covers of hit songs from the 1960s with the lyrics changed to provide comment on the storyline of the episode.
