Anthony Franciosa Facts
Father of actor Christopher Franciosa and Marco Franciosa with wife, Rita Thiel; and Nina Franciosa with wife Judy Balaban.

Starred in the first TV-movie produced as a TV series pilot to be picked up as a regular series, the two-hour TV-movie Fame Is the Name of the Game (1966) (TV), which was produced by Universal for N.B.C. Universal and N.B.C. were the same entities that pioneered the made-for-TV movie (with 1964's See How They Run (1964) (TV), the first full-length film produced especially for home television). The series, "The Name of the Game" (1968), debuted in 1968 with three leads: Franciosa, Gene Barry and Robert Stack. Franciosa subsequently was fired from the show and, instead of being replaced by one actor, was replaced by a series of actors filling in on his rotation including Robert Culp, Peter Falk, Darren McGavin and Robert Wagner.

Longtime friend of Jesse Jackson.
