This ABC drama related the adventures of three reporters working for Trans-Globe – an international newspaper wire service – who travelled all over the world, tracking down stories involving crime and high adventure.
The three reporters – Dan Miller (Dane Clark), Kate Wells (Mercedes McCambridge) and Dean Evans (George Brent) – worked independently and appeared in separate stories on a rotating basis over 39 hour-long episodes.
Sharp-eyed viewers could have noticed Michael Landon in the episode “High Adventure” (20 December 1956), playing his first major TV role.
In 1959 the Wire Service episodes starring Dane Clark were rerun under the title Deadline for Action.
