THE AQUANAUTS / MALIBU RUN
CBS at Wednesday 7:30 PM (60 min.)
Premiered: September 14, 1960
Last Aired: June 7, 1961
The Aquanauts was a one hour
action/adventure drama series that aired for one season from 1960 to 1961,
Wednesday nights on CBS at 7:30pm. Keith Larsen and Jeremy Slate starred as
California scuba divers, which provided teen viewers with a hip alternative to
Lloyd Bridges' Sea Hunt.
The show's lead characters, Mike Madison and Larry Lahr, own a dive shop called
The Aquanauts. They also take diving jobs on the side and that's where the
adventure begins. Lahr and Madison evoke that 60s California cool including
having hip bachelor pads at the Holiday House in Malibu.
Each week, what usually started out as routine jobs would never turn out that
way. And the show featured supporting actors whom would become stars in their
own right, such as Inger Stevens, William Conrad, Peter Falk, Mary Tyler Moore,
Robert Vaughn, Dyan Cannon and Burt Reynolds.
About half way through the season Larsen had to leave the show after he
developed an ear infection and was replaced by Ron Ely. In hopes of injecting
new life in the series, it was re-titled Malibu Run but it was not enough to
get the show renewed for another year.
