A TV Series version of "Saturday Night Fever"
3 April 2003 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

The other night I happened to be watching a brief biography of 'David Naughton,' the infamous "Dr. Pepper = Piperman" (I'm a Pepper, she's Pepper, So wouldn't you like to be a Pepper too), and became aware that besides that infamous jingle, and his brief-stint as the "American Werefolf" he also starred in this television series,"Makin'It" inspired or based on "SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER." In it,'Naughton'played the 'Travolta'(Tony Manero) role of Disco King. Too bad the series only aired for a few episodes, not even a full season; and its THEME was an even bigger hit than the series. 'Naughton' went on to co-star with 'Pam Dawyer'(Mork & Mindy)in "My Sister Sam."
