Custard Pie (Series) (1977)

Aka: The Rimshots (pilot)

Custard Pie
Take four talented but struggling young performers hoping to make it; put them together in a boarding house; film their struggles— and you have Custard Pie. It featured Peter Kastner as manager-performer of the group. With him was Kate Lynch as an actress aspiring to be great, Nancy Dolman as a future great singer and Derek McGrath who danced but— more important— owned a van. Vivian Reis was the stage-struck landlady who ran a dance studio, and Les Carlson owned the neighborhood restaurant.

Based on a superior pilot, The Rimshots, starring Andrea Martin, Catherine O'Hara, Dave Thomas, and Saul Rubinek.
