Bosom Buddies

TV Appearance

Hanks stars opposite Peter Scolari in ABC’s sitcom, Bosom Buddies, in which the two disguise themselves as women to further their career and live in the only apartment they can afford. Co-Producer, Ian Praiser, tells Rolling Stone

The first day I saw him on set, I though, ‘Too bad he won’t be in television for long’. I knew he’d be a movie star in two years. The television show came out of nowhere, then out of nowhere it was canceled. He figured he’d go back to pulling ropes and hanging lights in a theater.
