A pair of intelligence agents posing as a tennis pro and his coach go on secret missions around the world.
Before the series, Culp had written a pilot script in which he would play a James Bond-type American spy. He showed the script to Carl Reiner who then recommended him to Sheldon Leonard. The script was eventually produced as the episode "The Tiger".
Hey, what're you doing?
Kelly Robinson: I've come to save you.
Alexander Scott: You can't, man, I've got a boat coming, now get outa here!
Kelly Robinson: But I've come to rescue you.
Alexander Scott: You CAN'T rescue me NOW.
Kelly Robinson: How come you always embarrass me when I'm rescuing you.
During the opening credits sequence of many early episodes, scenes from that episode are shown underneath a closeup of Robert Culp's eyes. If you look closely, Culp's facial expressions (concerned, happy, etc.) almost always match the action happening on the screen. Later in the series, a standard set of action/romance/humor scenes was used.
