Bobby is a sportscaster. He is divorced, 42-years-old, and works for the All
Sports Cable Network [ASCN] owned by the Rappaport Broadcasting System. Bobby
co-hosts the programs Sports Central, Sports Chat and Sports Brief with his
40-year-old co-anchor Gayle Roberts [an ex-super-model whom Bobby once boinked
in college]. Luckily, the duo’s past relationship added spark and spice to their
on-air performance which helped the ratings. Bobby got his sportscasting gig
because the network’s egocentric owner R.J Rappaport liked jocks. At the time,
Bobby, a down-and-out ex-football player, was delivering pizza for a living.
After Gayle mentored the dim-witted Bobby in the ways of sports news, he fell in
love with her and proposed marriage. Earlier in his career, Bobby played
football for the University of Miami, the L.A. Rams, the New York Jets and the
Oakland Raiders. He also managed the career of his wife, Yvonne Pomplona, a
singer/stripper until they divorced. Bobby, himself, had a short recording
career under the name "Downtown" Bobby Tannen. As a hobby, Bobby collect beer

(Something Is Out There)
Los Angeles, CA
Ta'ra is a beautiful blue-eyed, blond female medical officer from the alien
prison spaceship Angelon (now destroyed), who desperately sought the capture of
a dangerous Xenomorph, a scorpion-shaped creature (in its natural form) that
escaped from her spacecraft and took refuge on Earth. Tracking the monster was
difficult because it camouflaged itself by taking possession of human bodies
(shape-shifting). She reluctantly teamed with Jack Breslin, a Los Angeles police
detective to track down the creature. Ta'ra's skills with mind-reading and
levitation and the detective's knowledge of Earth gave them an arsenal of
weapons to track down the sinister creature before it killed again. A unique
feature of Ta'ra's race were her hands. On her planet, hands were the focus of
sexual activity, so when Jack attempted to shake her hand, it was an encounter
of the no-no kind. When Ta'ra drank coffee, she got blitzed on the caffeine and
began to act like a drunk. She gets sexually aroused by watching the TV series
Crime Story (coincidentally another NBC series). Once when Jack was staring at
Ta'ra's sexy black jumpsuit Ta'ra read his mind and remarked "You want to do
WHAT! with my body?" Retiring for the day, she sleeps in the nude "I cannot
sleep in garments. It would be unnatural and uncomfortable to me." Note: The
Ta'ra character first appeared in the May 1988 NBC miniseries Something Is Out
