Very few television programs ever achieve such a milestone. The classic TV series Bonanza ran from 1959 to 1973 and didn’t do it. M.A.S.H. ran for eleven years on network television and didn’t even come close to it. In fact, it took The Simpsons 25 years to accomplish what the eScapes Network has done in a little less than six months.
And what is “it”? The 500th produced episode.
Granted, the eScapes Network does not have the logistical burdens of scripted programming– actors, sets, script revisions, and the like– but just as its network cousins, eScapes is highly dependent on locations.
In fact, that’s what the eScapes Network is all about… locations.
