Broadway Bound is a 1992 American made for TV comedy film directed by Paul Bogart, written by Neil Simon, and starring Corey Parker and Jonathan Silverman. Simon adapted his semi-autobiographical 1986 play Broadway Bound, the third chapter in what is known as the Eugene trilogy, the first being Brighton Beach Memoirs and the second being Biloxi Blues.
The play is about Eugene and his older brother, Stanley, dealing with their parents' relationship falling apart as the brothers work together toward being comedy writers for the radio, and, eventually, television.
