NBC BRINGS BACK MORK FROM ORK IN NEW "BEHIND THE CAMERA" MOVIE CELEBRATING POPULAR 1970S SERIES "MORK & MINDY"

Principal Photography Has Wrapped on "Behind The Camera: The Unauthorized Story of "Mork & Mindy", Based on Series That Launched Career of Robin Williams

BURBANK -- February 28, 2005 -- NBC once again offers viewers a peek behind the entertainment curtain as it re-visits the 1970s classic comedy "Mork & Mindy" in a new movie, "Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of 'Mork & Mindy'" -- based on the beloved series that launched the career of the Award-winning actor and beloved comedian Robin Williams.

The movie provides an entertaining and hard-hitting behind the scenes look at the classic comedy series that launched the career of Robin Williams. Newcomer Chris Diamantopolous (NBC's "American Dreams") will portray Williams, whose role as the winsome alien visitor, "Mork," captured the hearts of millions of American viewers. Williams began his career as a young, rising comedian who was cast as an alien on an episode of "Happy Days" which unexpectedly became a huge ratings success and catapulted him into overnight television stardom.

Erinn Hayes ("Significant Others") also stars as Pam Dawber, a young actress who became instantly recognized for her role as "Mindy," the likeable human who "Mork" boarded with on the sitcom. And Daniel Roebuck (who starred as Jay Leno in "The Late Shift") plays legendary television sitcom producer Garry Marshall.

The movie exposes the cast's tumultuous four years of creative infighting, personal problems, network interference as well as depicts Williams' painful struggle to cope with his newfound fame and overnight success.

"Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of 'Mork & Mindy'" is executive-produced by Matt Dorff (NBC's "Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of 'Charlie's Angels'") and Jim Head ("A Christmas Wedding") and produced by Once Upon a Time Films. Neil Fearnley ("Inside the Osmonds") directs from writer, David Misch, whose first writing job was on "Mork & Mindy."
