Szysznyk (Pronounced SIZ-nik) is a short-lived American television series produced by Paramount Network Television. Originally broadcast on CBS as a summer replacement series, five episodes were aired during August of 1977, followed by ten more during the 1977-78 television season. The series starred Ned Beatty as Nick Szysznyk.


Retired Marine Nick Szysznyk is a supervisor at a Washington DC community center.[1]

The ongoing punchline of the show was that other people, particularly those meeting Szysznyk for the first time, almost invariably mispronounced his surname. (In one episode, a detective called him "Sneeze-wick".)
