American Life TV buys four sci-fi series

Net nabs Irwin Allen-produced shows from 1960s

American Life TV, the network aimed at retiring baby boomers, has raided the vaults of Twentieth TV to buy four sci-fi series from the 1960s produced by Irwin Allen: “Lost in Space,” “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea,” “The Time Tunnel” and “Land of the Giants.”

The Allen series will take over American Life’s schedule Thursday night; the network will stack them, starting at 8 p.m. Sept. 6.

“Voyage,” based on Allen’s 1961 theatrical, is his longest-running series (1964-68). “Lost in Space” (1965-68), was remade as a theatrical by New Line in 1998, seven years after Allen died.

The Allen series join dozens of other oldies on American Life, including “Combat,” “The Honeymooners,” “Hill Street Blues,” “Mission: Impossible” and “I Spy.”

Allen produced theatrical blockbusters “The Poseidon Adventure” (1972) and “The Towering Inferno” (1974).
