At the CBS Studios in Studio City, I did an on-camera interview with regards to THE FAMILY GUY for FOX Promotions. All went well and the writers and producers there were all a very clever guys. They seem to ‘understand’ my humor. The NBC pilot that I did a few years back, titled, LOOKWELL was always mentioned by these talented young guys. We all laughed as the pilot gags were remembered. About a week later I get a call from my agent saying the same talented writers and producers want to do a series of sketches on what Adam West is watching on the FOX Network. Once I read the inventive scripts I knew I should do these clever, yet very offbeat sketches. We filmed them all within an eight hour day….starting around 11 ayem until 7pm….complete with set props and costume changes. The crew went from one sketch to another. It was just that fast. I was very pleased with the outcome. And from my e-mails so are many of you. Bat wishes, ADAM WEST
Here’s a little gem we came across on the web! Lookwell was a TV series pilot created in the early 90’s by Robert Smigel and Conan O’Brian that starred Adam West as Lookwell, an ex-TV detective with continued delusions of crime-fighting. The show never got picked up, which is truly a shame because it’s hilarious!
I Was just browsing YouTube and stumbled on this classic scene from the 1966 Batman movie…”Hand me down the shark repellent Batspray!”
