Its original name was going to be “Tomorrow is Yours”. A deal was struck between them, Richard Gordon, and George Foley, this entitled the producers of the show to have first choice of any of the 2,000 short stories and 13 novels by the various author members of the ‘Science Fiction League of America’. It was meant to be the first science fiction show for adults, as there were already many for children. It aimed to integrate mystery with science fiction, for a fast pace and suspense, it also gave authors such as Arthur C. Clarke their first televised adaption of their works. – Tales of Tomorrow Blog
