Only fiction series written & shot all over North America. Two young adventurers in a Corvette explore early 60's social problems and changing mores, looking for the right place to settle down while seeking themselves. Debuting 3 years after "On the Road" transformed modern literature, while such newly available fast cars dominated the new teenage culture, Tod, an Ivy Leaguer, and Buz, an orphan from Hell's Kitchen, cruise the U.S.A. coping with shifting relationships and lifestyles. The FCC's Newton Minow characterized U.S. TV as a "vast wasteland," in 1961, but "Route 66" found important, compelling stories all over. Sterling Silliphant who won an Oscar for writing "In the Heat of the Night," traveled around the U.S. and Canada scouting locales, while writing ¾ of the very dark, literate show's episodes - a feat only Rod Serling matched with The Twilight Zone.

I was about ten when this show premiered and watched it with my parents
every friday night between Rawhide and Twilight Zone. As you can see
was a good night for TV. I was fascinated with the show and its two stars,
both of whom I had crushes on. They were both so natural in their acting
and always delivered some words of wisdom by the shows end. The fact that
the show was always on location made it much more interesting to watch. I
was sorry too when Nick at Night quit airing it in the 80's. I watched as
many of the reruns as I possibly could and even now have a few on tape.
It's a show I think that still holds up today because of its uniqueness and
