7. Mr. Dugan Doesn’t Go To Washington

The Industry

Mister Dugan had the potential to be a hit show. It was a topical series about a recently elected idealistic black congressman who gets elected and has to contend with his less than helpful staff. Norman Lear was producing, Cleavon Little was the star. However, just days before it was to air on CBS in 1979 Lear himself pulled the show from the schedule. What went wrong? We take a look at the troubled production that started when Lear’s hit series Maude ended.
