Hugh O’Brian, Doug McClure and Tony Franciosa rotate lead roles as elite high-tech espionage operatives for Probe Division of World Securities Corporation in this spy-sational SF-flavored 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” – is wired for worldwide surveillance thanks to a Scanner (miniature video camera) and dental/ear implant.


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

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

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

The Probes hunt 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.
