What’s the status of New Comedy Showcase, a CBS summer replacement series from 1960? It ran for eight weeks and each week offered a half-hour unsold pilot. The UCLA Film & Television Archive has three of these pilots in its collection.
UCLA actually has two different versions of “You’re Only Young Twice.” One version is the pilot as broadcast as part o New Comedy Showcase while the other is the version that aired on ABC in 1968 as part of Vacation Playhouse.
