About Maureen McCormick


Maureen McCormick is widely known for her portrayal of eldest daughter, Marcia Brady, on the seminal ABC television sitcom, The Brady Bunch, on which she starred from 1969 to 1974. She later reprised the role in many of the numerous Brady Bunch spin-offs and films. America’s favorite girl next door, however, is way more than the three words for which she became famous: “Marcia Marcia Marcia!”

Maureen has also had a successful career in film, as a stage actress, recording artist and author. She co-starred in the iconic feature The Idolmaker, toured in the starring role as Wendy Darling in Peter Pan and Betty Rizzo in Grease, and released four popular studio albums. She portrayed country singer, Barbara Mandrell in the television biopic Get to the Heart: The Barbara Mandrell Story.

In 2009, McCormick added New York Times bestselling author to her resume with her much anticipated memoir,
Here’s The Story. Over the past decade she’s guest-starred on select primetime hit series while raising her daughter and enjoying family life in Westlake Village, Los Angeles.

Maureen joined “Dancing with the Stars” in 2016, immediately becoming the darling of season 23, and lasted for seven weeks of the hit show. Maureen has been working on several projects in 2017-2018 including guest-starring on a new sitcom and back-to-back movies.
