Background: The Solow Production Company was the company of Herbert J. Solow, which was spun off from the live action producing arm of Hanna-Barbera (now an in-name-only brand of Warner Bros. Animation). The only series this company produced was the NBC-TV show The Man from Atlantis. This show is owned by Warner Bros. Television, since they own the Hanna-Barbera library.
