Lottery!

Lottery!


An Intersweep Lottery representative (Ben Murphy) and an IRS agent (Marshall Colt) deliver big cash prizes to lucky winners across the country.
ABC comes up with yet another show that places the anthology structure in a series setting. That is the case with Lottery, which made its debut on September 9, 1983 at 8 pm in a 90-minute special.

Ben Murphy and Marshall Colt are, respectively, the dapper representatives of a worldwide lottery giveaway who reluctantly have Uncle Sam as a not-too-silent third partner.

The average sum given away is $2.5 million.

The show's promise is rooted in the fictitious Intersweep Lottery and its winning ticket-holders.

Ben Murphy plays Intersweep's American representative with the joie de vivre of Santa Claus.

Marshall Colt is cast as Murphy's partner of sorts, an IRS agent assigned to make sure Uncle Sam gets his share.

Their relationship is nicely drawn, with Murphy's devil-may-care approach balanced by the more serious Colt. When trouble arises, Murphy plunges into the spirit of adventure, while Colt timidly and reluctantly tags along.

Trouble of one sort or another is what the two men find as they dispense checks that don't always bring happiness. The stories are not divided into
separate segments, but rather are mixed together throughout the show.
