GOOD MORNING WORLD by Tim Colliver

The same people who brought you The Dick Van Dyke Show and That Girl scored another innovative sitcom in 1967 with Good Morning World. Bill Persky and Sam Denoff's creation, which aired Tuesday nights on CBS, was the first-ever TV series set in a radio station and featured the on and off air adventures of a pair of morning DJ's.

Joby Baker and Ronnie Schell starred as Dave Lewis and Larry Clark, with Julie Parrish as Dave's wife Linda, Vaudeville veteran Billy De Wolfe as their stuffy but loveable boss Roland Hutton and a little blonde dancer in her first acting role named Goldie Hawn.

This behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Persky-Denoff creation features exclusive interviews with Good Morning World creators and surviving stars. You'll be surprised that the idea for the series came from a real radio station, how CBS turned thumbs down on the first pilot episode, the behind-the-scenes drama, and the what-might-have-been if the series had gone a second season.

You will hold an impressive slice of TV history in your hands. Good Morning World was a trailblazer and paved the way for later shows like WKRP in Cincinnati, Frazier, and NewsRadio.
