SearchNBC premieres the TV movie/series pilot PROBE, created by Leslie Stevens (The Outer Limits), starring Hugh O’Brian (The Life & Legend Of Wyatt Earp) and Burgess Meredith (Batman, The Twilight Zone), and guest starring Sir John Gielgud. The movie does well with audiences and gets a series pickup, though due to a conflict with a PBS series of the same name, it will be retitled “Search” when it returns on NBC’s fall 1972 TV schedule.
