1965, Television: “I Spy”


"I Spy", an American television series, premièred on September 15, 1965. It ran for three seasons from 1965 to 1968 with a total of 82 episodes. The show was written by David Friedkin and Morton Fine. Together with cinematographer Fouad Said they formed "Three F Productions". The main characters were played by Robert Culp as international tennis player Kelly Robinson and Bill Cosby as his trainer, Alexander Scott. In reality they are top agents for the Pentagon.
 
"I Spy" was the first American television series to feature an African-American actor (Bill Cosby) in a lead role. The success of the show is attributed to the chemistry between Culp and Cosby. The two actors quickly developed a close friendship that mirrored their on-screen characters, a friendship that would last until Culp's death in 2010.
