1970s Phenom, the Irrepressible Mason Reese, Returns to Acting after 31 Years: His Borgasmord Productions Shooting TV Pilot; Show Cast Like “The Expendables” of Sitcoms

In the 1970s, child star Mason Reese gained national attention for his work in commercials. Arguably, the most famous of those was the one he did for Underwood Deviled Ham, where he spoke that immortal, inverted word, “borgasmord.”

His work garnered him the cover of TV Guide for the December 29th 1973 to January 4th 1974 issue. Mason told us that it was the first time in TV Guide’s history that someone made the cover who was known for commercials, but had never been in a scripted TV show or movie.

During his career in commercials, The Mike Douglas Show came a calling and the young Mason Reese’s star rose to new heights. The show’s producers liked his work so much they ended up having him on the well-known talkfest more than 32 times.

By the time he hit his teenage years, Mason says the phone calls and jobs slowed down. Eventually, he turned his attention to the New York City nightlife and restaurant industry. The former wunderkind currently has one spot, called the Destination Bar and Grille, on the lower East Side of Manhattan.

Mason, who is 49 years old, is now working on his first acting project in 31 years. Having raised funds via Kick Starter, Mr. Reese’s production company, Borgasmord Productions, raised over $38,000 to film a TV pilot for a show called Life Interrupted. The cast includes Dawn Wells who played Mary Ann on Gilligan’s Island, Erin Murphy who played Tabitha on Bewitched, Alison Arngrim who played Nellie Oleson on Little House on the Prairie, Michael Learned who played Oliva Walton on The Waltons and Robbie Rist who played Cousin Oliver on The Brady Bunch, among others.
