It Should Have Lasted Longer
In the mid-1960's, there were several television series set and shot on location in New York City including-Naked City, East Side/West Side, The Reporter, Trials Of O'Brian, and this one. Only Naked City lasted very long. Mr. Broadway looked like a can't-miss with the original idea, a series about the theater and show business, developed by Garson Kanin, produced by David Susskind, Craig Stevens, fairly fresh from his success in Peter Gunn in the title role, music by Dave Brubeck, and often the use of big name guest stars like Lauren Bacall. But miss it did, lasting only a season, as I recall. Too bad, as this was a well made, intelligently written series.
