Dom DeLuise in Lotsa luck ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lotsa Luck was the first TV show to showcase the comic brilliance and acting skills of Dom DeLuise, although he did go on to star in a couple of other short lived shows. The writing on the series was crisp, funny, and brilliant, because the creators of the series, Carl Reiner, Bill Persky and Sam Denoff picked only the cream of the available writers. They also surrounded Carl with a group of actors who would compliment Dom's special talents. The show first aired on September 10, 1973, and went off the air May 24, 1974, perhaps victim of edgy writing and scripts, but the chemistry of the actors and the wit of the writing contributed to DeLuise receiving a Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal of the beleaguered Stanley. The series features DeLuise as the custodian of the New York City bus company's lost-and-found department
