Sammy Davis Jr. plays a demon trying to buy Jack Klugman's soul in POOR DEVIL, a TV comedy in the tradition of BEWITCHED and I DREAM OF JEANNIE with a hellish little twist. Christopher Lee plays Lucifer and Adam West plays Klugman's despicable boss, but despite that phenomenal cast the pilot for POOR DEVIL wasn't picked up for series.
It's a devilishly fun idea, but was POOR DEVIL really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a deep dive into hell itself to figure out how this TV curio came about, what makes it work, what made it fail, and why it's got one of the funkiest theme songs we've ever reviewed!
