sammy davis jr's devilish tv show

It doesn't get much more mainstream than Sammy Davis Jr pitching a sitcom about a minion of the devil trying to get souls for his master. Perhaps not so surprising if you're familiar with the satanic times of the candy man, but still, even the Rat Packer couldn't get the Church Of Satan primetime subliminal advertising, and despite featuring Christopher Lee as Lucifer and Jack Klugman as potential soul recruit, Poor Devil got no further than a pilot in 1973. Perfect timing, set decor-wise, though.
