The Richard Boone Show is a short-lived, award-winning anthology television series. It aired on NBC during the 1963-64 season for 25 episodes from September 24, 1963 to March 31, 1964. At the time it was considered a unique experiment into weekly drama.

Richard Boone hosted the series and starred in about half of the episodes, garnering an Emmy nomination for himself and a Golden Globe award for the show . His repertory company of 15 actors included up-and-comers such as Guy Stockwell and Robert Blake as well as such established performers as Bethel Leslie (who was nominated for an Emmy Award for her performance in the series), Warren Stevens and Harry Morgan. They rotated parts freely; each appeared in most episodes, and each starred in at least one. The regular writers included Robert Dozier, Rod Serling, and Clifford Odets. Producer Buck Houghton was overseen by the prolific team of Mark Goodson and Bill Todman.

Programmed against the very popular CBS sitcom, "Petticoat Junction", Boone's anthology show was unable to find or keep an audience. It was cancelled after only one season, and has not been syndicated or released on home video, except for a brief showing on the Global Television Network in Canada in the late 1980's.  Due to it’s very limited run on TV it is an extremely rare television.
