Throb was an American television sitcom broadcast in syndication from 1986 to 1988. It revolved around thirty-something divorcee Sandy Beatty (Diana Canova) who gets a job at a small New Wave record label, Throb. Beatty's boss is Zach Armstrong (Jonathan Prince), who looks like Michael J. Fox but dresses like Don Johnson. Beatty also has a 12-year old son named Jeremy (played first by Paul Walker and later by Sean de Veritch).
Most notable was that it was the first time much of the American TV audience saw Jane Leeves, who later gained fame as Daphne Moon on Frasier. Also notable is the casting of a young Paul Walker, who played Jeremy Beatty for the first season. Walker became a certified leading man in Hollywood some 15 years later, especially after his breakthrough role in The Fast and the Furious.
The show was distributed by Procter & Gamble Productions.
