A.E.S. Hudson Street (partially found ABC sitcom; 1978)
A.E.S. Hudson Street was an American sitcom that aired from on ABC from March 23rd, 1978, through April 20th, 1978. The plot revolves around Dr. Antonio ”Tony” Menzies (Gregory Sierra), who is the chief resident of a run-down, ill-equipped, and underfunded hospital in the inner-city area of New York City. Five episodes were made, but all received a mixed reception upon its airing. It did not help that the show aired at a later time and suffered from lower viewership as a result. To this day, only a promotional clip and an intro for A.E.S. Hudson Street have surfaced.
A.E.S. Hudson Street centers around the staff and patients at an underfunded and overcrowded emergency ward in New York City. Dr. Tony Menzies (Gregory Sierra) is the chief resident of the hospital, which offers "adult emergency services." Having to deal with various patients often in a comedic tone, he aspires to be somewhere else in his medical career. Dr. Tony Menzies is often at odds with the hospital administrator J. Powell Karbo (Stefan Gierasch) as he will not promote Dr. Menzies.
Due to A.E.S. Hudson Street receiving mixed to low ratings and airing at a later timeslot, ABC canceled the show after five episodes. As of the writing of this article, only a short promotional clip and the intro of the show have since surfaced.
