Christopher Knight Shares His Memories on 50 Years of ‘The Brady Bunch’ (Exclusive)

Consider our minds boggled! How is it even possible that The Brady Bunch — that icon of Classic TV — is celebrating its 50th anniversary? And even more improbably, that the cast is still getting together for new projects, most recently the HGTV series A Very Brady Renovation? Christopher Knight (known in TV circles as Peter Brady) gave up trying to figure it out a long time ago. Although he attempted to move on at one point in his life, he inevitably found himself drawn back in and now accepts his role in this particular legacy with gratitude.

“Eventually, while I was in Australia,” he relates to us in an exclusive interview, “I discovered that there’s some real warmth and strength in having been a Brady and perhaps it shouldn’t be run away from. I think it was these subsequent reiterations or reunions that just kept me aware that it was coming back every seven years or so.”

Born Christopher Anton Knight on November 7, 1957, in New York City, Chris has actually had quite the successful life outside of the Brady household. While he would act here and there in film and on TV, in the late 1980s/early ’90s he immersed himself in the PC/computer industry, cofounding the pioneering 3D graphics company Visual Software, founding Kidwise Learnware, which manufactured interactive educational products; became Vice President of Marketing at video hardware company iXMicro; and founded Eskape Labs, a TV tuner company.

Appearing on MTV’s The Surreal Life, he met model Adrianne Curry, the two of them developing a relationship and being featured on the VH1 reality show My Fair Brady (which will be the subject of a separate article). In between, of course, there have been all of those Brady reunions.

All of this and much more is discussed in the following exclusive interview. To check it out, just scroll down!
