After casting the pilot, they found themselves in the uncomfortable position of having an all-white cast and they came under some criticism from the NAACP for it. That's why they cast black actors for Charlie and Admiral Fitzwallace.
Which wouldn't have been a problem if Sidney Poitier had been Bartlett, as it was originally intended.
