The Show:

John Reed King hosted this prime time series in which contestants were given the basic facts of a situation and had to determine..."why?" Bill served as announcer/co-host, and The Encyclopedia of TV Game Shows says that Bill was also the producer, a rare job for him.


In terms of sheer "stuff" that exists, this could be Bill's most obscure TV work. In the four months it was on the air, it got virtually no press. We have only a broad description of the premise. We've never seen a photo of it.


Oh yeah, and no video either.
