The Bold Ones Trivia
The Bold Ones was not the only time that a number of series aired under an "umbrella" name. NBC used that technique pretty successfully at least a couple of other times. The NBC Mystery Movie was actually a rotating timeslot that aired for seven seasons. The series were "Banacek", "Columbo", "McCloud", "McMillan and Wife", and "Quincy M.E.". The series as a whole was a huge hit!
Before McCloud aired on the NBC Mystery Movie, it premiered on another NBC umbrella series titled, "Four in One". The other three shows on Four in One were "Night Gallery", "The Psychiatrist", and "San Francisco International Airport". Night Gallery also left the Four in One club to become its own series with its own time slot!
These types of shows are often referred to as "wheel series". Yet another such series that also aired on NBC was "The Name of the Game". The different segments on that series did not have their own seperate titles but there were three different shows that starred Gene Barry, Robert Stack, and Tony Franciosa.
