Gary Coleman

July 15, 1990

Stumbo disappointed me greatly as she made it seem that in almost two years with this office nothing was done for Gary Coleman. She left out information regarding a pilot deal to do "Gary's Court," a half-hour sitcom a la "Night Court" with Gary playing a judge. It was a pay-or-play deal, and, unfortunately, the project didn't go and Gary was paid a good deal of money. Gary was the "Star of the Week" last year and received $10,000 for the week. When Gary first joined this office and right after the Winchester Festival, I put him on the "Today Show" and shortly thereafter on Bob Costas' highly rated show.

In addition, months were spent with the Disney Channel to find a project for Gary there. Gary met with numerous executives, including the president of the Disney Channel. Almost a full year was spent trying to package "The Frankie Lymon Story." A deal was finally made to take an option on the script by Ventura Productions, but to date a deal has not been set for Gary.
