NBC received Vendig's original concept in March 1966, and lour months later was given five sample scripts. "They liked it, had no room, and let a year go by without anything happening," Vendig said. At that point he found an interested sponsor and almost immediately the project suddenly came to life again. SP/4 BENNY J. BICAWICH, son of Mr. and Mrs. Tony Bi- cawich of B.B. 1 Bonnie, is shown arriving at the Mt. Vernon Airport for a short leave. Blcawlch has been assigned to an aviation battalion at Fort Stewart, Ga. He has spent 12 months in Viet Nam. NEW YORK (AP) — A new daytime serial will be born Dec. 30 on NBC, and its creator will be hurt and-a little angry if "Hidden Faces" is kissed off as just another soap opera. "It is an adventure-mystery serial in which we develop characters," insisted author Irving Vendig. "We'll show the action —our characters won't sit around drinking coffee and talking about something that happened off-camera." The serial has been planned deliberately for a long life. Vendig created "Edge of Night" as an adventure-mystery serial and wrote its scripts for nine years before he moved along to other things, and the serial is still on the air. He turned out more than 2,200 scripts for "Perry Mason" in its radio days and recalls it went on for 15 1 jj years—and was followed by the Raymond Burr TV scries for another nine. Vendig made a master plan for "Hidden Faces" that carefully puts his principal characters in positions surrounded by drama. His male lead, for example, is a stale senator victimized by a blackmail plot. Vendig docs not expect the series will receive immediate acceptance. "Getting these daytime things going takes time," he said. "It usually takes a year, and even longer, because daytime viewers are more creatures of habit than nighttime viewers, even if they are the same people. I do, however, think it is wrong to treat the daytime audience as if it consisted only of housewives. I believe that about one quarter of that potential audience is men—men who work at home, night workers, garage men, doctors and others. Vendig started turning out broadcast material in Chicago during its golden radio days. While he lias been associated with some big, long-running shows, he also has experienced disaster, most recently with a short-lived daytime serial called "Paradise Bay" a few seasons back. "It was one of the worst concepts for a serial," he admitted frankly. "I knew it couldn't work the minute I saw the first show and I wanted to kill it then and there. But the network was committed to 26 weeks, so we staggered on to the end." It takes time and patience to Recommended tonight "The Little Drummer Boy," NBC, 7:30-8 EST, animated musical Christmas show for children; "The Andy Williams Show," NBC, 8-9, special Christmas show with the Williams clan and the Osmund brothers.
