The Keegans was a TV pilot film for a projected serialized weekly about an extended Irish-American family. Tim Keegan (Tom Clancy), the clan's father is a dock worker. Son Larry Keegan (Adam Roarke) is a magazine reporter, while Larry's brother Pat (Spencer Milligan) is a pro football player. And daughter Brandy (Heather Menzies) is an aspiring model, hampered by her petty-crook father. Mom Keegan (Joan Leslie) is apparently nothing more than "special guest star" (along with Judd Hirsch, as a police lieutenant). In the pilot, Larry has to clear Pat of the murder of the man who attacked Brandy. While The Keegans didn't make the grade as a series, it wasn't long before Hollywood took notice of the directorial skills of John Badham, leading to such prestige theatrical-film assignments as The Bingo Long Travelling All-Stars and Motor Kings, Saturday Night Fever, and Blue Thunder.
