Never before in television history will so many important film stars be appearing in their own series. These projects already hnvc been announced: Henry Fonda will star for ARC in n generation-gap series called "The Smith Family," produced by Don Fedderson, creator of "My Three Sons," "Family Affair,, and "To Rome with Love." Shirley MncLainc will have her own ABC series, to be produced in Knglnnd by Sheldon Leonard, late of "1 Spy" and "My World and Welcome tn it ." Tony Curtis will coslar with Hogcr Mooro in an ABC adventure series, also to be made in England. Like the MncUainc series, this one is backed by British producer Low Grade, who plans to release it simultaneously on English and American television. Glenn Ford has signed for a comedy half- hour about a police detective who takes over n youth center. CBS has ordered the scries from 20th Century-Fox. Dick Van Dyke will return to CBS in a new series which will be filmed near his home in Phoenix, Ariz. James Garner, who first achieved fame as "Maverick" on ABC, is going back to television in an adventure series for NBC. Other lop slurs arc being offered to the networks for future series. Why'' The reason Is clearly wrillen in the lortured economies of (he movie business. Kxcept for a handful of hot personalities- notably Paul Newman. Steve McQueen. Duslln Hoffman. Koberl Itedford and Klliott Could- -stars are simply nol in demand for today's film market Those who could earn $500,000 per picture last year aren't receiving scripts today. The emplwsis Is on low-budget, youth-iippt>nl movies, and those can be made with unknowns. So it's only natural for the. likes of Fonda, Curtis, Madeline and Garner to go (or the jinmense money that a television series can provide. It's a big step. To most of them it means HI least n gap in n career as n movie attraction Rarely has the star of a television series been able to maintain ;i .successful film career. Dean Martin has managed, but he appears on television in a variety show, not a dramatic scries. Television is a gamble True, film slurs can Kirn or more in the first year Hut their series can (»!«(> tx»ml> out in one season, causing serious career damage.
