Alfred Hitchcock Presents, sometimes called The New Alfred Hitchcock Presents, is an American anthology series that aired on NBC from 1985 to 1986 and on the USA Network from 1987 to 1989. The series is an updated version of the 1955 eponymous series.
The series aired 76 episodes.
In 1985, NBC aired a new made-for-television film based upon the series, combining newly filmed stories with colorized footage of Alfred Hitchcock from the original series introducing each segment. The segments were "Incident in a Small Jail," adapted and directed by Joel Oliansky, "Man from the South," adapted and directed by Steve De Jarnatt, "Bang! You're Dead!," adapted by Harold Swanton and Christopher Crowe and directed by Randa Haines, and "An Unlocked Window," adapted and directed by Fred Walton. The film was a ratings success.
A new Alfred Hitchcock Presents series debuted in the fall of 1985 and retained the same format as the film – newly filmed stories (a mixture of original works and updated remakes of original series episodes) with colorized introductions by Hitchcock. The new series lasted only one season before NBC cancelled it, but it was then produced for three more years by USA Network (which is now co-owned with NBC under NBCUniversal), and shifted production from Los Angeles to Toronto, where the show's new Canadian producing partner Paragon Motion Pictures was based. Name directors who helmed episodes included Tim Burton, David Chase, Burt Reynolds, Atom Egoyan, Joan Tewkesbury, and Thomas Carter.
NBCUniversal's horror-themed cable channel Chiller, which launched on March 1, 2007, aired the new Alfred Hitchcock Presents for the first time on television in more than a decade. The new Alfred Hitchcock Presents was the first show to air on Chiller when it launched at 6:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
