TV Shows - Get Smart
Get Smart is an American television comedy series that satirizes the secret agent genre. Created by Mel Brooks with Buck Henry, the show starred Don Adams as Maxwell Smart, Agent 86, Barbara Feldon as Agent 99, and Edward Platt as the Chief of CONTROL, a secret American government counter-espionage agency. Henry said the creation of this show came from a request by Daniel Melnick, who was a partner, along with Leonard B. Stern and David Susskind, of the show's production company, Talent Associates, to capitalize on the two biggest things in the entertainment world today, James Bond and Inspector Clouseau. Brooks said It's an insane combination of James Bond and Mel Brooks comedy.
The series was broadcast on NBC-TV from September 18, 1965, to April 12, 1969, after which it moved to CBS-TV for its final season, running from September 26, 1969, to September 11, 1970. 138 episodes were produced. The series won seven Emmy Awards, and it was nominated for another fourteen Emmys, as well as two Golden Globe Awards. In 1995, the series was briefly restarted, starring Adams and Feldon, with Andy Dick as Max's and 99's son.
Four feature-length movie versions of the Get Smart idea have been produced: first, with part of the original cast in 1980s The Nude Bomb, which was also called The Return Of Maxwell Smart, then in the 1989 ABC TV Movie Get Smart, Again, and most recently, in a 2008 film adaptation starring Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, Dwayne Johnson and Alan Arkin, which also spawned a spin off film, Get Smart's Bruce and Lloyd, Out of Control.
