Television Playhouse




Television Playhouse
 1953 | NBC Television

Under the leadership of Fred Coe, the Television Playhouse was, during 1953, in the judgment of many discerning critics, the most consistent producer of fine television drama. We especially commend Mr. Coe for his firm emphasis on good writing, and note his steadfast opposition to the star system. In recognition of its superior standards and achievement, we present to the playhouse a George Foster Peabody Award for outstanding entertainment.
