Hailed In Holland
"HAILED IN HOLLAND":
George Peppard had to stay home, but his A-Team co-stars Dirk Benedict, Mr. T, and Dwight Schultz were mustered out and ready. The plan: accompany series producer Stephen J. Cannell on a whirlwind promotional tour of the Netherlands, where their show (subtitled in Dutch) is a big hit. Did the plan come together? And how. "We arrived at the Amsterdam airport," says Cannell, "and there were 25,000 screaming people to meet us. It took us 15 minutes to walk 20 yards to the customs shed." After that, things got hectic: "There were 4000 people in front of our hotel. They had to board up the windows." The exuberant reaction "shocked us," says Cannell. "I have videotapes of the tour. I show them to people in the office here and they can't believe it."
