IMDb profile

Leslie Stevens (3 February 1924—24 April 1998) was the supervising producer for the Original Series.

In addition to producing, he was also a director and writer for various series, amongst them McCloud, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Gemini Man.

Stevens is probably best known for his work on the 1963-65 science fiction anthology series, The Outer Limits, which he wrote and produced under Daystar Productions, an independent company that he created.

According to Alan J. Levi, Stevens "wrote the original script. Leslie was one of my best friends. I do know that Leslie had told me at one time way before he ever got into the script that he had this great idea for a script that he was going to take to Glen Larson and talk about. Now whether in a court of law that would mean that Leslie came up with it and took it to Glen and Glen said, ‘Fine, we’re going to co-do it’ or not, I can’t tell you. I wasn’t there."[1] However, no further information has surfaced to support Levi's claim.

Aside from this, it is known that Stevens wrote the two-hour episode, "The Beta Pirates", which was never produced.
