Dick is a rising young business executive who life is turned upside down when his younger brother Tom reenters his life. This wouldn't be too unusual, but Tom had died two years earlier in a boating accident and is now an apprentice angel always trying to help others, but frequently only makes things worse, which forces the young angel to call upon his earthly brother to sets things aright.

Visionary producer Aaron Spelling saw something in the Smothers Brothers that no one else had seen before and decided to give them a chance with this show. The show didn't quite take off, but it was their first big break on TV. Spelling wrote that later he felt like saying "I told you so!" after the Smothers Brothers hit it big on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour (1967). See more »
A couple years before the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour...
...there was a sitcom.
A black and white half hour series on CBS. (I think it was the last season the networks had B&W during primetime). It lasted only one season, but had 32 episodes.
Drowned at sea many years earlier, Tom Smothers returns to earth as an apprentice angel, and takes up residence in the bachelor apartment of his living brother, Dick. Inept and ordered to assist people in distress, Tom reluctantly assisted by Dick, struggles to complete his assignments and acquire the status needed to become a full-fledged angel.
