McKenna was a short-lived TV series that aired on ABC during the 1994–1995 season. It starred Chad Everett and Jennifer Love Hewitt.

The series revolved around Brick McKenna (Eric Close), who returned to Oregon to take over his brother's business, McKenna Outfitters, after his death. He runs the business with his brother's widow, Leigh (Shawn Huff), and his father, Jack (Chad Everett). His sister, Cassidy (Jennifer Love Hewitt), and his niece and nephew, Rose and Harry, help out.

Production[edit]

Although thirteen episodes were filmed, only five aired in the US...three during September 1994, and the other two in July 1995.[1] The series was broadcast in its entirety in Australia on the Nine Network (and its affiliate NBN Television).

The series was shot in and around Bend, Oregon.

Jennifer Love Hewitt was not cast until after the pilot episode was filmed. In the pilot, which aired as the first episode, her character was played by Vinessa Shaw.
