MATINEE THEATER

October 31, 1955 _ June 27, 1958

Matinee Theater is an American anthology series that aired on NBC from 1955 to 1958 and was hosted each day by John Conte.

Matinee Theater was a most ambitious theatrical TV series for NBC televising five different stage plays per week live, airing around noon in order to promote color TV (which had just been developed) to the American housewife as she labored over her ironing.

An earlier live series Cameo Theatre introduced to television the concept of theater-in-the-round, TV plays staged with minimal sets.
