The ''Mystery Movie'' strand was a WheelProgram that ran on {{NBC}} from 1971-77, and later on {{ABC}} from 1989-90. The most famous element was ''{{Columbo}}'', which came to television in a MadeForTVMovie in 1968 (''Prescription: Murder'', adapted by [[LevinsonAndLink Richard Levinson and William Link]] from their stage play) before becoming part of the wheel in its initial season following a second TV movie (1971's ''Ransom For A Dead Man''). ''{{McCloud}}'' (inspired by the 1968 movie ''Coogan's Bluff'') began as an hour-long show as part of another WheelProgram, ''Four-In-One'', in 1970; the following season, this and ''NightGallery'' were "freed" from the wheel, ''Night Gallery'' for its own slot and ''[=McCloud=]'' to be in the new strand. ''McMillanAndWife'', starring Rock Hudson and Susan Saint James respectively, was the only element to be directly created for the ''Mystery Movie'' lineup. Once this was an established success, NBC and [[{{Universal}} Universal Television]] launched a second night, moving the three originals to Sundays (they initially aired on Wednesdays) as the rebranded ''NBC Sunday Mystery Movie'' and premiering the ''NBC Wednesday Mystery Movie''; they also tried to find a fourth spoke for the wheel, but none of the new arrivals (see below for chronology) stuck - in fact, it wasn't until the final season that they finally had an addition which was a real hit, in ''[[{{Quincy}} Quincy, M.E.]]''. In 1977 all the elements were cancelled except for the crusading coroner, who in a reversal of ''[=McCloud=]'' was granted his own hour-long slot (although ''Columbo'' continued to make appearances in additional TV movies). In 1989 ABC resurrected the concept.
