Jean Shepherd, who gained prominence as champion of the "night people," has taken a daytime job on a television soap opera. He will portray the role of Milton Sweetwater, a TV producer, on "From These Roots."
N.B.C. said Mr Shepherd would make his first appearance on the program on Wednesday at 3:30 P.M. He will appear occasionally thereafter, the network said.
It is unclear if Shep did appear. He was not mentioned as a cast member in the IMDB or Wikipedia listings. The show was cancelled December 29, 1961, so there was a chance he appeared over the 10 month period
The show ran on N.B.C. daytime from June 30, 1958 to December 29, 1961.
