Marcia! Marcia! Marcia! Barry Williams welcomes 'Brady Bunch' sister to his new show

"Brady Bunch" star Barry Williams, better known as Greg to fans of the quintessential '70s sitcom, is on his way back to the small screen in a new reality TV show called "A Very Barry Branson." And he's even bringing one of his "Brady" sisters along for an episode.

But as it turned out, it took some convincing to get Maureen McCormick (aka Marcia) to join in on the program about Williams' quest for a variety show in Missouri's big-deal small town.

"She came, I have to say, a little bit kicking and screaming," Williams confessed during a Wednesday morning visit to TODAY. "I've been talking to her about this show for a long time, and I said, 'Please come for a week. Let me show you around. I'll get you out on the lake, see the entertainment, and I bet I can change your mind.' And I did."

It'll be a blast from the past for fans, who recently enjoyed another "Brady" treat in the form of a Snickers' Super Bowl ad.

In the commercial, "Machete" star Danny Trejo took on the role of Marcia, and Williams admits he loved it.

"I thought it was hysterical!" the 60-year-old said. "It makes ['The Brady Bunch'] relevant [again]."

Of course, Greg, Marcia and the rest of the gang never stopped being relevant to "Brady" fans.

"A Very Barry Branson" premieres Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on the Great American Country network.
