On the Air

1992, TV Show

A bizarre parody of the frenetic, behind-the-scenes life of a live TV variety series set in 1957 titled `The Lester Guy Show.' Coproducer David Lynch's surreal stab at humor featured his usual assortment of quirky characters, including Lester, the faux show's star, who kept getting knocked unconscious; his spacey costar, Betty; and Vladja, a director with an incomprehensible Slavic accent. Deemed far too strange for a mainstream audience, `On the Air' was off the air after three episodes.
