Plot & Details

Ghost of a Chance is a failed TV pilot starring Redd Foxx and Dick Van Dyke. Foxx is a piano player accidentally killed by hard-hearted narcotics officer Dick Van Dyke. Since he's died before his scheduled time, Foxx is sent back to earth, where he helps Van Dyke track down genuine criminals. Naturally, Foxx is endowed with supernatural abilities, including a penchant for disguise. Ironically, Dick Van Dyke's son Barry had starred in another unsold pilot in 1981, also titled Ghost of a Chance and also dealing with a misplaced spirit.
