Although Hurrell credited a number of staff writers, he wrote or extensively rewrote virtually every script and served as the series director (highly unusual today, unheard of in the 1960’s).

Just prior to her untimely death, Carlyle was, in fact, cast as the original Neely in the hit, Jacqueline Susann's VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, a role ultimately played (or, as some critics would say, botched) by Patty Duke. Given her prior work and established range, there is no doubt that Neely would have been the role that would catapult her to stardom
