Robert Reed is best known for his role as ‘Mike Brady’ opposite Florence Henderson in the ABC network family drama ‘The Brady Bunch,’ from September 1969 to March 1974. He again appeared as ‘Mike Brady’ in the spinoff ‘The Bradys’ (1990). However, the series was not as successful as the original.
His first television starring role was in the legal drama series ‘The Defenders’ (1961 - 1965) alongside E. G. Marshall.
The series did well till it was shifted from Saturday to Thursday.
He received three ‘Primetime Emmy’ awards for his performances in the series ‘Medical Centre’ (1975), ‘Rich Man, Poor Man’ (1976), and ‘Roots’ (1977).
He appeared in a few minor roles in movies like ‘The Hunters’ (1958) and ‘Bloodlust’ (1961), before playing a significant role in ‘The Love Bug’ (1969). Though he did not wish to be stereotyped, Reed appeared as Mike Brady in a number of spinoffs of the original television series that include movies like ‘The Brady Brides’ (1981) and ‘A Very Brady Christmas’ (1988), but they were not as popular as the television series.
