Created by Irving Vendig, who had been writing the weekday radio drama Perry Mason for CBS and Proctor and Gamble. The program was originally intended to be a TV version of that radio drama, but the rights were denied by Perry Mason's creator, Erle Stanley Gardner, because the producers did not promise that the characters of Perry Mason and Della Street would remain romantically uninvolved.
