The Time Tunnel: The Time Tunnel was a 1966-1967 U.S. color
science fiction TV series produced by Irwin Allen that lasted
for one season and 30 episodes. It was produced by 20th
Century Fox for the US ABC television network.
"Two American scientists are lost in the swirling maze of past
and future ages, during the first experiments on America's
greatest and most secret project, the Time Tunnel. Tony Newman
and Doug Phillips now tumble helplessly toward a new fantastic
adventure, somewhere along the infinite corridors of time."
The premise of the program is based on the existence of
Project Tic-Toc, a top secret U.S. government effort to build
an experimental time machine known as "the Time Tunnel". With
the costs of the project approaching those of the entire U.S.
space program, a young physicist, Dr. Tony Newman (James
Darren) turns the machine on and sends himself back in time in
an attempt to prove that the Time Tunnel project funds were
not wasted. In so doing, Newman becomes "lost in time". In an
attempt to rescue his younger friend, Tic-Toc scientist Dr.
Doug Phillips (Robert Colbert) enters the Time Tunnel as well.
But the time machine was not built to handle two people
travelling in time; it malfunctions, making Newman and
Phillips' return impossible until repairs are effected. As the
series progresses, the two time travellers are swung from one
period in history to another, allowing episodes to be set in
the past and future -- but always ending in a cliffhanger as a
preview of the next episode. The final episode ends with no
