I wonder if they were thinking about making this into a series.
In this installment of "Studio 57", Bette Davis and her, at the time, husband Gary Merrill starred. She is an agent who represents Broadway actors and he is a playwright...though the story focuses much more on her and her latest project. She has a client who is the son of a famous actor and LOTS of pressure is being put on the young man to follow in his father's footsteps...and much of it is coming from his dad. Not surprisingly, the young man is extremely nervous...and his dad only makes this worse. So, the motherly agent does what she can to keep the guy from giving up...which seems very, very likely.
This could have easily been a weekly series and Davis was very good in this role. In fact, like any pilot, it left me wanting to see more and it's a shame this didn't occur.
