  1. Hank Simms is the promo announcer. “JANE WYMAN PRESENTS” was an MCA-TV “reissue” package of her 1955-’57 episodes (after she “took over” ‘FIRESIDE THEATER” in 1955).

  2. These promos aired on ABC shows like “Maverick” as early as November, 1961 to promote the January, 1962 addition of “Jane Wyman Presents” to the ABC daytime schedule. The syndicated package was comprised of the 94 episodes from the 3 seasons of the “The Jane Wyman Show” that originally aired on NBC from 1955-1958 and were produced by Jane Wyman’s production company Lewman Productions (co-owned with MCA) at Republic Studios. “Jane Wyman Presents” also aired in ABC prime-time as a summer replacement series in 1963.
