Personal Quote:

[addressing the widely held belief that the 1954 murder case involving Dr. Samuel Sheppard was the basis for his TV series The Fugitive (1963) ] I don't care whether people say "The Fugitive" was based on the Sheppard case. The only reason I deny it is that it happens to be the truth. See more »

Trivia:

The short stories and one novel that he published in the 1940s provided the source material for three of the television series he created: 77 Sunset Strip (1958), The Rockford Files (1974), and City of Angels (1976). See more »
