William Windom appeared in two episodes of Donna's show. I read that she was thinking about retiring after season 4 and so the show featured a back door pilot called Wide Open Spaces. It starred William and Patricia Breslin as a husband and wife who leave the city for the country life. It would have replaced Donna's show if she retired. William went on to co-star in The Farmer's Daughter.
