When he started as a comedy writer for the "Late Show with David Letterman," Steve Young had few interests outside of his day job. But while gathering material for a segment on the show, Steve stumbled onto a few vintage record albums that would change his life forever. Bizarre cast recordings - marked "internal use only" - revealed full-throated Broadway-style musical shows about some of the most recognizable corporations in America: General Electric, McDonald's, Ford, DuPont, Xerox. Steve didn't know much about musical theater, but these recordings delighted him in a way that nothing ever had. While tracking down rare albums, unseen footage, composers and performers, Steve forms unlikely friendships and discovers that this discarded musical genre starring tractors and bathtubs was bigger than Broadway.

The police procedural film, which aired on The CBS Thursday Night Movie on March 8, 1973, served as the pilot for the subsequent television series Kojak, although in this version Savalas' character's name is spelled "Kojack." The supporting cast features Chita Rivera, Bruce Kirby, Tol Avery and Robert Walden; and the plot of the film was based upon the true story of the sensational 1963 U.S. Supreme Court case dubbed by the media as the "Career Girls Murders," in which two working women were raped and murdered. The opening and closing titles of the film emphasize that it was a fictional account of the events that led to the creation of Miranda Warning by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1966. The TV-movie's running time is 2 hours and 17 minutes.
