Cameo Theatre

Show Summary

Cameo Theatre was an anthology series from the Golden Age of Television, created by Albert McCleery, and was an innovative experiment of early television programming. His techniques and ideas were to focus more on the story and actors than the scenery, making for more intense viewing. This half-hour format consisted of top notch scripts, both original and adaptations. Controversial topics and a flare to bring the stage to the small screen made this program different than the usual fare. Airing as summer replacement programming this show aired only three seasons to be brought back in 1955 for the fourth and final run.
