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.
Quinn Martin was the producer of such television shows as The Invaders, Barnaby Jones, The Untouchables, The Streets of San Francisco, Cannon and 12 O'Clock High, to name just a few. How each series made it to the networks, what problems occurred during their production, and why they were cancelled are examined. Martin's 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 are widely admired in the industry.
