The celebrated Studio One An All-Star cast finely dramatizes the incredible events surrounding and resulting from the 1938 "Mischief Night" broadcast by Orson Welles and The Mercury Theater On-The-Air of a dramatization of the H.G. Wells novel "The War of the Worlds". Coming upon the heels of the rumors of war that aired from Europe day after day during the Czechoslovakian crisis, this radio drama's tale of an invasion from Mars struck a chord in the conciousness of America that the mood the country resonated with, and it continues to reverberate to this day. It was the first example of what nowadays we call "reality" programming, and is also ironically history's most effective manipulation by a single broadcast of the perception of reality in the conciousness of the masses. The chaos and mayhem which resulted from so many listeners believing the dramatization to be real have become legend, and this docudrama sought to encapsulate that legend within this television dramatization.

Studio One was an American radio anthology drama series that was also adapted to television. It was created in 1947 by Canadian director Fletcher Markle, who came to CBS from the CBC. It aired under several variant titles: Studio One in Hollywood, Studio One Summer Theatre, Westinghouse Studio One and Westinghouse Summer Theatre.
