Aaron Miller was a strict, bearded Amish father who uprooted his tight-knit family from Pennsylvania and moved to California when his eldest son, Noah, died there.
Noah Miller had forsaken his Amish ways and when he perished in a surfing accident, he left behind a pregnant girlfriend (Susannah) with a vineyard she couldn’t manage alone. So the Millers moved in to help.
Stories revolved around the Millers’ culture shock as they adjusted to modern California ways while trying to retain their deep-rooted moral values and peculiar style of dress.
Conservative Aaron always seemed to clash with free-spirited Susannah and her sharp-tongued mother, Connie, who ran the local beauty shop. Susannah’s teenaged brother Mickey had eyes for Aaron’s daughter, Roseanne.
Aaron Miller was portrayed by former LA Ram and Hall-of-Famer Merlin in the CBS drama.
The cast also boasted such notable names as Belinda Montgomery, Samantha Mathis and veteran actress Jessica Walter.
