Close on the heels of 1979s Captain America, CBS tried again with this second pilot film called; Death Too Soon starring occasional leading man Reb Brown as the Marvel superhero. Christopher Lee co-stars as the evil mastermind of a plot to create an instant aging serum and antidote in order to extort millions and spread terror and fear. When he's done chasing down a street gang snatching retirement checks, Captain America sets his sights on the dangerous villain. CBS decided to cancel plans to develop a series based on the Captain America character following the failure of The Amazing Spider-man the year before and Wonder Woman's falling ratings that season.
