Quinn Martin, Producer: A Behind-the-Scenes History of QM Productions and Its Founder
"Quinn Martin was the most innovative and most creative of his kind. He was a man in touch with the future, far more than the times. His characters were not stereotypical characters. His production methods were not stereotypical either. He was unique in a number of ways. That's why his shows did so well"--Lynda Day George, guest star on QM's The Fugitive, The FBI, and other shows. Producer of such television shows as The Invaders, Barnaby Jones, The Untouchables, The Streets of San Francisco, Cannon and 12 O'Clock High, Quinn Martin was widely admired for his devotion to his shows, his hands-on approach to the writing, casting and editing of each episode, his interactions with network executives, and the high standards he set for his crew and actors. This detailed study of Martin and his company examines each of his series in detail, from development through cancellation.
