Plot:
The 'Prince' is Billy Hamilton, son of the automotive legend William Hamilton III.

Billy followed high-minded academic pursuits at Harvard instead of the car business. Even though the rest of the family refuses to acknowledge Billy, his mother, Gertrude dotes and visits often.

Billy's father suddenly dies, and surprisingly leaves him in charge of Hamilton Motor Works.

The ghost of Billy's father keeps humming an Elvis tune ('My Boy') to him, while Moms and Uncle Charlie might be shacking up, and the CFO wants Billy's head on a platter (and his job, too!).

Notes:
Set in the realm of the Detroit auto industry, this ABC project is focused on Shakespearean themes related to one dysfunctional family.
