9 x 30 minute episodes
Based on the successful film of the same name, this short-lived sitcom starred Scott Bakula as Hunt Stevenson (the role Michael Keaton had played in the movie), and Gedde Watanabe in a different (but similar) role to the one he played in the film
The setting was an auto plant in Hadleyville, Pennsylvania, which had been reopened under new ownership and management as part of Assan Motors, a Japanese owned company.
The comedy stemmed from the culture clash faced by the American workers and the Japanese management.
