Storyline

Louis Harper was a professional football player and humanitarian who became the president of Braddock University. He attempted to use his new power to help the underprivileged, but was continually hampered by administrators who were more interested in fund-raising than education. Maggie was the school's statuesque dean of faculty, and Sam the PR man. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Trivia

This series was a revamped continuation of the Bea Arthur series Maude (1972). In the final three episodes of the sixth season of that series, Maude moves to Washington, D.C. and becomes a congresswoman. After sixth season wrapped, Arthur quit the series. Executive producer Norman Lear decided to retool the concept into "Onward and Upward" starring John Amos about an African-American congressman. Amos had disputes with the show's producers over the script and left the show after the pilot was shot. He was replaced by Cleavon Little. The series was retitled "Mr. Dugan". Three episodes were taped and set to air on CBS beginning in March 1979. A screening was held for the Congressional Black Caucus but the congressmen objected to what they perceived to be a negative portrayal of African-Americans in politics. Lear halted production and retooled the concept again and it became "Hanging In". See more »
