The character of Teddy Z was based on Jay Kantor, who was a mail-room clerk at Music Corp. of America sent to pick up Marlon Brando and drive him to the agency. Impressed by the young man, Brando promptly appointed him his agent. See more »
Jon Cryer of "Pretty in pink" fame starred in this shortlived sitcom about a 20-something Greek-American working in the mailroom of a Hollywood agency, who accidentally becomes the agent of an eccentric Brando-esque star, much to the annoyance of Al Floss (Alex Rocco), the agency's No1 agent.
I found "The famous Teddy Z" fairly amusing. It was certainly no worse than many other sitcoms which enjoyed longer runs. Rocco was particularly good.
