Creator: Desilu Studios

Originally founded by Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball to produce I Love Lucy, the studio fell on hard times after Lucy and Desi divorced, and was the only studio willing to take the risk to produce Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek: The Original Series (probably figuring it had little to lose). Bought out and absorbed by Paramount during Trek's original production run. Their other productions included Mission: Impossible, Mannix, The Untouchables and By the Numbers.

Which is to say: Desilu was responsible for a whole raft of Trope Making or Codifying shows and is direly under-appreciated by many modern television viewers. If you consider yourself any kind of student of media history, you'll want to get very familiar with their shows.
