In Your Dreams

Host: Fritz Coleman.

Host: Fritz Coleman.

Fritz Coleman’s back with a spec, in which real people get to act out secret fantasies, that’s as tenuous as a weather report. He introduces a would-be actor , Danny Roque, and a department store baby photographer, Jeff Gregg, to other worlds and career opportunities. It’s heavyweight whimsy as Coleman wields his “power of the positive.”

Host picks Roque from an eatery to let him “perform” for seemingly unimpressed showfolks like Jackie Collins, Dick Clark and Stephen Cannell, and presents him to director Chuck Bowman, who gives him a line in “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.” Jane Seymour acts charming.

In the second seg, Coleman clowns around with 19-year-old Gregg, leading him into photo sessions with models Maria Von Hartz, Garcelle Beauvais and Caprice. They’re good sports and pose charmingly for Gregg, who understandably appears dazed.

Fans of KNBC weather reporter/standup comic Coleman will revel in the freeform special. Some non-fans will eye the program with a shrug, while others may find the venture too lightweight, and may float away from the program altogether.
