BEHIND THE CAMERA: THE UNAUTHORIZED STORY OF MORK & MINDY (NBC-TVM 4/4/05)
Set against the backdrop of the popular 70s ABC sitcom “Mork & Mindy,” this is a story about the show, its star Robin William's rise to number one, and the highs & lows of instant fame.
It was the 1970's in Hollywood and a future movie star was looking for his big break. He was an up and coming star on the Los Angele's comedy circuit; his name was Robin Williams (Chris Diamantopoulos).
While on the other side of L.A, producer Garry Marshall and his partner Harvey Severson have an Idea for a spinoff of their hit show "Happy Days”, but they just can't find the right leading actors to pull off the title rolls of "Mork" and "Mindy”! It's in their meeting with Williams that they have found the ideal "Mork". Soon, as the show slowly turns into a hit, a story of what happened behind the camera unfolds as the young comic is suddenly handed everything he ever wanted, very quickly on the proverbial Silver Platter, as his life, world and friends around him fall apart.
Also stars: Erinn Hayes, Michelle Harrison, Tyler Labine, David Lewis, David Richmond-Peck, Meredith McGeachie, Richard Kahan, Daniel Roebuck. (86 min)
