Lost in Space was the first primetime weekly television series to take viewers into outer space's strange new alien worlds – something the networks believed impossible on a TV budget and schedule.  In this exciting new book series, you are whisked back in time to the production offices, writers' conferences, and soundstages for the making of this iconic series.  Included are hundreds of memos between creator/producer Irwin Allen and his staff; production schedules; budgets; fan letters; more than 500 rare behind-the-scene images in each volume; and the TV ratings for every episode.

Now, in Volume 2, the story continues with Lost in Space‘s second season and a switch to color. But it has a tough new rival in space – NBC-TV's Star Trek.  On Wednesday nights opposite Space, the red-hot Batman provides formidable competition in the ratings game.  At the same time, CBS continues to pressure Allen to make the series more cheaply and change it from science fiction, action/adventure to camp/fantasy.  Remarkably, the most dangerous monsters of Lost in Space lurked behind the scenes … and wore business suits.
