A Storm in Summer is a 2000 American made-for-television drama film directed by Robert Wise and starring Peter Falk, Andrew McCarthy, Nastassja Kinski, and Ruby Dee. It is the last film to be directed by Wise. Rod Serling's original script had previously been adapted as a 1970 TV film directed by Buzz Kulik starring Peter Ustinov and N'Gai Dixon, and the filmmakers re-used the same script for this production. Serling's script was posthumously honored with an Emmy nomination and a Writers Guild Award.
Producer Renee Valente won a Daytime Emmy in 2001 for her work on the film.
At the 28th Daytime Emmy Awards, the film was co-winner of the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Children's Special along with Run the Wild Fields. Peter Falk was nominated for Outstanding Performer in a Children's Special but did not win.
