An attempt by CBS to emulate the sixties success of The Dick Van Dyke Show. The new show saw family man Dick Preston running his own talk show for KXIU-TV in Phoenix, Arizona.

In season three, Dick moved to Hollywood to take a role in a Daytime soap called Those Who Care.

The New Dick Van Dyke Show was written and produced by Carl Reiner who had conceived the original Dick Van Dyke Show (and co-starred as Alan Brady).
