When actor John Glover ("Gremlins II," "52 Pick-Up," "Scrooged," etc.) was in town visiting his family recently, he performed a labor of love. He spent two days at his alma mater, Towson State University, meeting with theater students.

His next stop was Miami, where he and actress Patti D'Arbanville are starring in a new NBC television pilot "South Beach," which has a "Man From U.N.C.L.E."-type format. It's a two-hour film, followed by six episodes. No word yet on when it will be aired.
