The John Sullivan sitcom that was ended before it began

Following the end of his first big hit in the 1970s, Citizen Smith, Sullivan was scouting around for another project, and settled on a comedy about a failing football manager, known as Over The Moon. Brian Wilde was cast in the lead role, whilst director Ray Butt was also on board. The BBC was happy, and gave a six series first run the nod, after a successful pilot was made. Barely weeks later, though, the BBC promptly changed its mind.
