Unaired pilot, 2004
Lee Tergesen was in the original version of the pilot for
"Point Pleasant," as a
character named Thomas -- a henchman of Satan.
The pilot was originally shot in the spring of 2004, and Fox TV
network ordered 13 episodes in September 2004.
But in November 2004, Fox announced that the show had been revamped,
with several roles being recast and others expanded. Lee's character
apparently morphed into "the mysterious and charismatic Lucas
Boyd," played by Grant Show of "Melrose Place"
Thus, Lee wasn't in the version of the pilot that aired Jan. 19,
2005. But tapes of the original pilot exist. Click
here to see Lee's deleted scene. (I have spliced the scene
together. It was in two parts in the unaired pilot -- he appeared at
the beginning and the end of the show. His conversation with the
character Kingston Nickson bracketed the show and was filmed in a
moody, magenta filter.)
"Point Pleasant" has been described as a cross between
"Peyton Place" and "The Omen." Elisabeth Harnois
plays the lead role of Christina Nickson, whose father is Satan and
whose mother was a woman from Point Pleasant.
Fox canceled the show after eight episodes aired in the U.S.
