Broadside, Bewitched, and Dick Sargent
Original Airdates: May 27-29, 2022
TVC 579.2a: Greg Ehrbar discusses Broadside (ABC, 1964-1965), the short-lived spin-off of McHale’s Navy starring Kathleen Nolan, Dick Sargent, and Edward Andrews that is best remembered today as the show that prevented William Asher and Elizabeth Montgomery from casting Sargent as Darrin on Bewitched when that series began production in 1964. (Sargent, of course, later joined the cast of Bewitched in 1969 as the replacement for Dick York.) Select episodes of Broadside are available for screening on YouTube.
