Steve Canyon Airing on Decades Starting May 22

Diginet Decades starts airing one season wonder Steve Canyon next week. On Tuesday, May 22nd, the show will join the two-hour “Lost TV” block on Decades. The block runs from 4-6AM ET on weekdays (or Tuesday through Satuday, depending on your point of view). It includes so-called “lost” TV shows like The Loretta Young Show, Decoy, Trouble with Father (aka The Stu Erwin Show), and Life with Elizabeth.

Based on the comic strip by Milton Caniff, Steve Canyon ran for 34 episodes on NBC during the 1958-1959 season. The half-hour adventure show starred Dean Fredericks as Steve Canyon, a U.S. Air Force pilot. It has not aired on TV since 1960. The Caniff estate released the show on DVD in three volumes between 2008 and 2015.

According to the Steve Canyon On DVD blog, Decades will air Steve Canyon in its original broadcast order with closed captioning.

  1. funny how Dean Fredericks career fell through the cracks….. he first played KASIM in Jungle Jim// later went to the Disney co Studios with the Light in the forest ….and of Course the heavy in Disney’s greatest tv effort GALLEGHER….many casting rolls went uncredited…..

  2. Steve Canyon was my favorite TV show when I was 10 – 11 years old. I think I watched every show faithfully and I bought the entire DVD set when it came available. I credit Steve Canyon for making me enter the USAF in 1968 and stay there for 23 years. I dont regret one minute of it. TV should have shows like that today.

  3. “Operation Intercept” was the most chilling episode of the series. I remember watching it first run as a seven year old and have never gotten that episode out of my mind.
