Szysznyk

1 9 7 7 –  1 9 7 8 (USA)

Nick Szysznyk (Ned Beatty) was a retired marine, used to the discipline and order of military life, who had taken on a new job as a playground supervisor at the Northeast Community Center in a poor neighbourhood in Washington DC.

Coping with the bureaucracy in the city government that funded the centre, his coworkers, and the street kids who used the centre, all proved challenging to him – and to them as well.

Highly successful in its initial run on CBS against repeat programming during the summer, Szysznyk returned in December 1977 against stronger competition and lasted only two months.
