Studio 57


Studio 57 Information

Studio 57 (also known as Heinz Studio 57) is an American anthology series that was broadcast on the now-defunct DuMont Television Network from September 1954 to September 1955, and in syndication from 1955 to 1956.

Overview

The program was a filmed anthology television series sponsored by Heinz 57 and produced by Revue Studios. The program aired on the DuMont network from September 21, 1954 to September 6, 1955, making it "one of the last regularly scheduled series ever carried on the crumbling DuMont network". (Only What's the Story and boxing matches aired on DuMont afterwards). Studio 57 aired in first-run syndication from 1955 to 1956.

Criticism

Television historians Tim Brooks and Earle Marsh describe the scripts for Studio 57 as bland. DuMont lacked the budgets of CBS or NBC and hence relied on cost-cutting measures, including the use of unknown actors to star in network programs. Among these then-unknown actors were Hugh O'Brian and Natalie Wood. Other DuMont-aired episodes included actors such as Robert Armstrong, Jean Byron, Lon Chaney, Jr., Andy Clyde, Carolyn Jones, Brian Keith, Charles Coburn, and DeForest Kelley.
