Quinn Martin was the executive producer of this short-lived anthology series that focused on stories with a supernatural or science-fiction twist. It boasted the typical QM trappings: each act began with a graphic announcing "Act I", "Act II", etc.; expensive-looking production values and location shooting; popular guest stars like Bill Bixby, Lloyd Bridges and Roy Thinnes; narration by "Cannon" star William Conrad; decent scripts; and, of course, all those Ford vehicles.

This show ran for such a short time that few people ever heard of it and it is often confused with Roald Dahl's show of the same title. I have 5 episodes of the show on video, my absolute favorite being "No Way Out" with Bill Bixby. I liked just about any series that Quinn Martin produced and this was one of my favorites. If I can ever find the other shows in the series, I'll write an episode guide. The series was called "Twist In the Tale" in the UK, but almost no information can be found about it. I doubt it will ever be released on video or DVD but I would be the first to buy it if it was. I would love to share information with anyone who has any information on the show.
