> Description 
Fireside Theater was an anthology series, latterly presented by actress Jane Wyman (hence the above title). Little seems to be known about this show, and details of some episodes are sketchy at best.

The show started out as a fifteen-minute live drama series in April 1949. It soon switched to half-hour, with two stories run back-to-back, and pioneered pre-filming: it was one of the first TV dramas to be shot entirely on film (rather than continue to be broadcast live from a TV studio. It was hosted initially by producer Frank Wisbar from 1952, and by Gene Raymond from 1953.

With Wyman hosting and producing (and taking the possessive screen credit), it was thoroughly overhauled, and ran from 1955 to 1958.
