The world is shocked by the appearance of two talking chimpanzees, who arrived mysteriously in a U.S. spacecraft. They become the toast of society; but one man believes them to be a threat to the human race.
In a futuristic world that has embraced ape slavery, Caesar, the son of the late simians Cornelius and Zira, surfaces after almost twenty years of hiding out from the authorities, and prepares for a slave revolt against humanity.
J. Lee Thompson

The two human leads graced the show with an Ivy League pedigree. Ron Harper (who played Alan) was a Princeton graduate and won a fellowship to Harvard, while James Naughton (Pete) was a graduate of Brown and Yale. See more »

Wow, canceling this show after 13 episodes was a tragedy. William Smith was awesome in this show. One of the most unheralded actors in the business. For Roddy Mcdowell to stay on with Heston and the other stars gone was truly commendable.
