By 1965, he had become a staff writer on "Peyton Place," the original prime time soap opera. Gleason went on to pen a total of 36 episodes of the hit show from the mid to late 1960s. He then wrote and produced the crime drama series " McCloud," which earned him an Emmy nod for Outstanding Limited Series. In 1982, he developed a more popular crime drama, "Remington Steele," which featured a pre-James Bond Pierce Brosnan.
