Shaping Up


Shaping Up

"Shaping Up" was a television situation comedy, created by writer-producers Sam Simon and Ken Estenwhich, which ran for five weeks on ABC. A spring replacement in 1984, "Shaping Up", originally titled "Welcome to the Club", was given the 9:00 Tuesday slot following Three's Company. Leslie Nielsen played Buddy Fox, curmudgeon owner of the Buddy Fox Health Club. Michael Fontaine (B. Miller to Rocky Horror Show fans) played Ben, the club's manager who was like a son to Buddy and served as the show's voice of sanity. Other cast members included Jennifer Tilly, Shawn Weatherly and Jake Steinfield of Body by Jake fame.

While only five episodes were aired, six were shot. The role of Ben was first played by Tim Robbins, whom the network replaced with Fontaine.
