Storyline

After a Federal faux pas, small-time mobster John Tenuti flees West across the U.S., pursued by bumbling goons from his Jersey outfit plus his rabid ex-wife, a Fed herself (Rose Abdoo). As pompadoured Johnny Bago, he sees the USA in his Winnebago, cranks up the tune-age to remind him of dear old Hoboken, and each episode lands in a bizarre back-roads situation with locals as flaky as he is (including Elvis). Unfortunately neither Johnny nor this summer replacement series from the producers of Seabiscuit and The Polar Express, with music by Jimmy Buffett, made it to Fall. Written by David Stevens

Johnny is the `white sheep' of a mafia family, and a terrible embarrassment to them. Just released from jail, after serving time for a crime he didn't commit, he's framed for a murder.

Not wishing to return to prison, he becomes a fugitive. In the first episode, he takes up with a kindly old man in a motorhome. The old man dies (peacefully, while fishing -- no foul play), and Johnny takes off in the motorhome, with his parole officer (who also happens to be his very spiteful ex-wife) in pursuit.

The last name, `Bago', by the way, is an alias he assumed. When the old man asked him his name, he saw the letters B-A-G-O, and not being any more imaginative than that, gave that as his last name. He was looking, at the time, at a partly-covered nameplate identifying the well-known manufacturer of the motorhome -- `Winnebago'.

In subsequent episodes, Johnny meets Elvis Presley, hangs out with a group of environmentalist crackpots, spends time among a group of migrant farm workers who think they see The Virgin Mary in a pattern of mud splattered on the motorhome's windshield, and has a variety of other highly improbable adventures.
