Synopsis
The TV sequel -- bordering on a complete remake -- of Steve Martin's feature film, "The Jerk," the saga of Navin Johnson, country bumpkin who leaves the family of black sharecroppers that had raised him and proceeds to make his zany way in the world. Stand-up comic Mark Blankfield, one of Steve's proteges, has the lead in this prospective TV pilot for Martin's production company. Bumbling from one misadventure to another on his cross-couintry odyssey to find his true love on the eve of her wedding to an aristocrat, he teams with enterprising hobo, Ray Walston, dances in the park with bag lady, Gwen Verdon (in a bizarre musical sequence similar to something that might have come from Martin's "Pennies From Heaven"), and beats unbilled Jimmie Walker, Martin Mull and (billed) Lainie Kazan in poker in Las Vegas.
