It’s not a sitcom. It’s an experiment.
1964. Benny Camden and his friends leave the University of Southern California with their newly minted master's degrees and a project that was the talk of the campus. The Glen Headwood Show is fresh. It’s new. It defies genre and rifles praise from its critics. Is it a talk show? Variety? Sketch comedy? Drama? One thing it’s not: on television.
Now he wants to sell it to a network, and that’s when reality sets in. It’s not that no one is interested. It’s that Hollywood wants to commercialize his vision, and to see it come true he may have to give up the things that made the show great.
At what point does a dream turn into a disaster?
Before Weston, there was Benny Camden. The Glen Headwood Show is the prelude to Gregory Attaway’s The Great Ones. See the boy before you see the man.

Benny Camden is the mind behind the most innovative show on television.
