Kevin Keegan (Sam Robards) is a recently divorced TV news photographer who quits his job and returns to his former school, Roosevelt High, to teach the kids how to take the school newspaper into the electronic age and produce a weekly cable TV show.

This short-lived series (it was cancelled during the first season) is most notable for introducing a young Matt LeBlanc to the world. He featured as Chuck Bender in a controversial three-parter in which he got his girlfriend, Jamie (Lisa Trusel) pregnant – and while he was more than willing to marry her, she decided (with her mother’s approval) on an abortion.
