Arthur Penn's life reentered television at the strangest time. After he had already spent his salary earned from Bonnie and Clyde and while the film went through a studio writeoff that was profitless, he had to take on a new project. This project reminded him that television has fallen as a medium. William Hanley was paid $112,500 by NBC for Flesh and Blood—one of the first TV movies shot on video. Penn agreed to direct the movie without knowing that the actress had a drinking problem, and this almost threatened the whole production. Penn did not entertain another TV offer for the next twenty-five years, and this arrangement however turned into another shotgun marriage for Penn.
