Furthermore, Marshall shot the pilot for Land of the Giants in 1967 (with the series finally airing in the fall of '68), so he--like many actors shooting pilots--probably hoped LOTG would go to series, as his was a lead role--the important note about that is such a role very rare for African American males on 1960s TV up to that time, aside from Cosby on I Spy and Robert Hooks on the original N.Y.P.D.
Don't forget Greg Morris on Mission: Impossible, which premiered in 1966.

(Although I've never even heard of N.Y.P.D.)
