The Bill Dana Show

Show Summary

BILL DANA, comedian/writer, created a character called JOSE JIMENEZ for the STEVE ALLEN SHOW. This led to a series of successful records and nightclub appearances. BILL's character, JOSE JIMENEZ, is a Mexican immigrant who works as a bellhop at the PARK CENTRAL HOTEL. He had a bachelor room there and ate in the hotel kitchen. He was portrayed as somewhat naive, yet he tried to find the good in people. His fellow bellhop, EDDIE (GARY CROSBY), kept trying to wise him up. The hotel manager, MR. PHILLIPS (JONATHAN HARRIS), was not too understanding towards JOSE. Not-so-bright hotel detective, BYRON GLICK (DON ADAMS) didn't help matters either. FIRST SEASON: September 1963-September 1964 (including reruns) 1964 NBC Sunday 7:00 pm-7:30 pm SECOND SEASON: September 1964-January 1965 NBC Sunday 8:30 pm-9:00 pm
