Hugh O’Brian, Doug McClure and Tony Franciosa rotated lead roles as elite high-tech espionage operatives for the Probe Division of World Securities Corporation in this spy-sational SF-flavoured actioner from Leslie Stevens (creator of The Outer Limits) and Robert Justman (producer of Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation).

Each agent – dubbed a “Probe” – was wired for worldwide surveillance thanks to a Scanner (miniature video camera) and dental/ear implant.


Tracking their telemetry and giving real-time mission advice was a team of specialists at Probe Control directed by the brilliant, irascible V.C.R. Cameron (Burgess Meredith).

O’Brian played Lockwood, Probe One, an ex-astronaut. McClure played CR Grover, Standby Probe, and brilliant beachcomber goofball.

Franciosa played Nick Bianco, Omega Probe, a street-savvy ex-NYC cop tasked with organised crime capers.

The Probes hunted stolen moon rocks, missing agents, a deadly Probe defector and more, alongside special guest luminaries like Stefanie Powers, Bill Bixby, Mary Ann Mobley, Sebastian Cabot, Barbara Feldon, Mel Ferrer and Joanna Cameron.
