Storyline

Ted Costas, the program director for a free-form public radio station in Washington, D.C., has woman problems. The divorced father of a teenaged girl, Ted is still in love with his ex-wife, Lee Ann Plunkett. The re-married Lee Ann, a political commentator, left the station when she left Ted, but she has now returned to resume her career. And Gretchen Schreck, the wide-eyed kid whom Ted once baby-sat, is now a stunningly beautiful, amazingly competent broadcast intern. The one thing Ted doesn't notice about Gretchen is that she never quite got over her childhood crush on him. Written by Anonymous

Robert Hays starred in this brief sitcom set at a public radio station. The setting was pretty good (and similar ones have been used several times since) and the cast was unusually strong, but this failed because of two major weaknesses. One was Robert Hays himself. He is handsome and likable, but in a bland way, at least on the surface. Even his greatest comedic success, his role in "Airplane," derived a lot of the laughs by juxtaposing farcical elements on a generically appealing stereotype. The other shortcoming of "FM" was even more basic: it wasn't very funny. Patricia Richardson and DeLane Matthews had previously co-starred in "Eisenhower & Lutz."
