In 1956 Stanley Meyer, a producer at Warner Brothers in Los Angeles, had expressed an interest in buying an option on Live and Let Die and Moonraker. At the time of Doctor No's publication he was producer and co-owner of the legendary Television show Dragnet, the most successful police series on US television. Meyer was also the chairman of Filmaster Ltd., which helped to produce such popular early U. S. television series as "Pete Kelly's Blues," "Gunsmoke" and "Have Gun Will Travel.".
