An anthology series starring Richard Boone as host and starred in about 50% of the shows. Each regular had parts in almost every episode and starred in at least one episode. Written by

I can add little to the well-made comments of the ex-Georgian (now safely in Mass.) regarding THE RICHARD BOONE SHOW. It was indeed unique on television in the 1960s and beyond.
The producers probably thought the name would attract viewers, but obviously not enough. I would like to think this rotating cast of characters and situations was "ahead of its time," but perhaps there was no such time. Series, a.k.a. "prime time" television watchers apparently did not like the insecurity of no characters or settings to which they could become attached. Always there was something new, even unique, c.f. the afore-mentioned episode by Odets. THE RICHARD BOONE SHOW was not in keeping with Ray Bradbury's notion of "television family" -- which the host's expositions from the Green Room could not replace. To be best of my recollection, Richard Boone disappeared from television with this noble experiment.
