Though it was heavily promoted by the network, it aired on Friday nights, when the intended audience was out disco-dancing, so only nine episodes aired in the spring and summer of 1980.
I met Douglas Barr at a party in 1987, but at the time I hadn't seen him in anything, so I didn't know he was a celebrity. I knew that he was very nice and had a great physique.
Later he starred in Designing Women (1987-91) as Bill Stillfield, boyfriend and eventual husband of Charlene (Jean Smart), naive receptionist of the interior design company.
Since Designing Women, Doug has been involved with directing, especially tv movies with titles like Perfect Body, Sex, Lies, and Obsession, and Beautiful Girl. He's written a few such movies himself, including The Cover Girl Murders and Taking a Chance on Love. Not a lot of gay subtexts. But he had more than enough early in his career.
