The Protectors

ProtectorsITCPressFolder-w

The Protectors is a British television series, an action thriller created by Gerry Anderson. It is Anderson’s second TV series using live actors as opposed to animated puppets, and also his second TV series to be firmly set in the present day (following The Secret Service). It is also the only Gerry Anderson-produced television series to date that was not of the fantasy or science fiction genres. It was produced by Lew Grade‘s ITC Entertainment production company. Despite not featuring puppets or any real science fiction elements, The Protectors became one of Anderson’s most popular productions, easily winning a renewal for a second season, and a third was in the planning stages when the show’s major sponsor pulled out, forcing its cancellation. The Protectors first aired in 1972 and 1973, and ran to 52 episodes over two series, each 25 minutes long – making it one of the last series of this type to be produced in a half-hour format. It starredRobert Vaughn (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) as Harry Rule, Nyree Dawn Porter (The Forsyte Saga) as the Contessa Caroline di Contini, and Tony Anholt (Space: 1999Howard’s Way) as Paul Buchet. Episodes often featured prominent guest actors. source: Wikipedia
