As viewers reveled in being transported to shadowy underworlds, creative geniuses emerged in the forms of Jack Webb ("Dragnet"), Desi Arnaz ("The Untouchables"), and Bruce Geller ("Mannix" and "Mission: Impossible"). Groundbreaking actors Bill Cosby ("I Spy") and Angie Dickinson ("Police Woman") reveal the methods behind their successes as the first African-American and breakthrough female lead characters in a television series. Barbara Bain and Martin Landau share the secrets behind the innovative hit "Mission: Impossible"; Peter Falk’s friends and colleagues recall the evolution of his "Columbo" character; and James Garner and series creator Stephen J.
