TheOneManHerd 538 Posted June 17, 2022 Share Posted June 17, 2022 (edited) The list of locally-produced sitcoms is, unsurprisingly, short. A lot of people in the TV business know of Park Street Under, the sitcom produced by WCVB that's believed to have inspired Cheers and is still remembered by Bostonians of a certain age. On the other hand, you have this: Hamtramck, a production of WDIV in Detroit. A disaster according to almost everyone, it caused the station to be inundated with phone calls from offended viewers, mostly from the Polish community. In fact, according to Mort Crim's memoir, word of the show and it's portrayals made it to Poland itself, and those Poles who heard of it also hated it. In fact, when Crim was on assignment there, his interpreter nearly deserted him when she learned that he worked for WDIV. She stayed on only after Mort and crew convinced her they had nothing to do with Hamtramck. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IZiVLneyHRpQqQuEXlUgRZW8tasZIaEt/view Edited June 17, 2022 by TheOneManHerd 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
