Michael Dorsey, an unsuccessful actor, disguises himself as a woman in order to get a role on a trashy hospital soap.
Writer Larry Gelbart once said that he did not meet the other writers on this project until they were on stage together collecting their awards.
That is one *nutty* hospital.
Soaps tape well in advance of their air date. As the big reveal scene had to be done live, then how did the network and/or producers deal with all the shows where Dorothy is anyone other than Dorothy? Never brought up nor addressed - major plot hole, but like pulling the thread on a sweater, the ending would unravel.
Dustin Hoffman is credited twice: Dustin Hoffman .... Michael Dorsey Dustin Hoffman .... Dorothy Michaels
