Can you match these prolific TV producers to the right shows?

These producers were behind some of the biggest hits on TV.

While TV fans may know the names of all the actors on their favorite shows, the people behind the scenes usually aren't widely known. After all, few producers ever show their face onscreen. But sometimes a producer becomes so successful that it’s hard not to notice their name popping up again and again in the credits.

Here are the people behind some of the biggest shows from the '60s, '70s, and '80s. Can you match each producer with the right series?

  2. Aaron Spelling produced numerous hits like The Mod Squad, The Love Boat and…
  3. Jack Webb is best known for creating and starring in Dragnet but he also produced which other police drama?

I made ten thousand dollar a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Here’s what I’ve been doing more information visit this site… https://www.Usd.Works68.Com

12/12 Quinn Martin produced some of my favorite shows: "The Invaders", "The F.B.I." (or "The FBI"), "The Fugitive", and "Tales of the Unexpected".

#4 -- Rod Serling created "Night Gallery" but he was NOT its producer. Jack Laird was producer. Serling wanted nothing to do with its production; he said "There's not enough money in the world to take a guy over 40 and make him go through that grind again; that is, at least not me." It was a decision he came to regret, as Laird emphasized the bizarre and shocking over characterization and good storytelling. Serling assumed the producers would look to him for vision, since he was the creator and his name was on the show, but he was wrong. As the series progressed, many of his own scripts were rejected by the producers because they weren't shocking and frightful enough. Later, he reflected "On 'Twilight Zone' I took the bows but I also took the brickbats, and properly, because when it was bad it was usually my fault. But when it was bad on 'Gallery' I had nothing to do with it, yet my face was on it all the time."

11/12. Gotta say, I really miss the old Quinn Martin format: "With Guest Stars...", "Tonight's Episode...", plus Acts I through IV. Though it wouldn't be quite the same without that same person's voice (was it actually Quinn Martin? It was the same voice on all the shows.), but I still wish somebody would use that format again.

I always remember "Next...The FBI...in color" and "The Ford Motor Company presents...The FBI". Henry F. "Hank" Simms was an announcer for some QM productions. Richard Lewis Wesson (Dick Wesson) did early QM productions like "The Invaders" and "The Fugitive".

If they ever did bring that back, it would sure remind me of more innocent times of my youth

You got 10 out of 12 - Did you produce all the right answers for this quiz? Missed #5 and #12. Guessed wrong on them but knew all the others. I'll take it.

My little Bella took this test and failed it.
Her paw kept hitting the wrong key.
Test should be more dog friendly.
