Can you picture Milton Berle in the lead role???
I was watching a late 1956 edition of What's My Line? on GSN tonight (this morning) and Milton Berle was the mystery guest. He commented that he was moving to England to film his next series with producer Sheldon Reynolds and described the basic premise of this series, saying it would begin airing in September of 1957. I don't know what happened that prompted his exit from the show, but I can only imagine how awful it would have been with him starring. If you didn't think it was a good show as produced, just be thankful Uncle Miltie wasn't inflicted on you! It seemed to me as he was talking about it that the plans were a bit sketchy in his mind. I got the feeling he wanted to have something to promote after the humiliation of being beaten off the air in the ratings by Bishop Fulton Sheen.
