I thought I knew all there was to know about Irwin Allen, but I had no idea that he had ever worked on any super hero project. What’s even stranger is that this script was listed on ebay and we missed it. Just as well, though, since Kuljit Mithra (the person who bought the script) deserves it! He wrote up a fantastic review of the project on his blog “Daredevil: The Man Without Fear”
Producer Irwin Allen, who you may know from Lost in Space, Towering Inferno, and Poseidon Adventure, was behind a script written by Tony Kayden for Columbia Pictures Television. I’m guessing at the time, the rights to Daredevil were given to Columbia, and Stan Lee was shopping the character around in California.A few years ago, I stumbled upon an old auction for this script… it featured a cut out cover of DAREDEVIL 200 pasted onto a mylar sheet. It was the first time I had heard of this, and apparently there were only two copies of this script in existence. So when I saw it on eBay in December 2015… I had to get it.
