His TV credits included dramatic roles on such shows as "Robert Montgomery Presents", "HallMark Hall of Fame", "Armstrong Circle Theatre" and "Playhouse 90" among many others. Following PETER PAN, Ed's TV credits included a recurring role on "The Patty Duke Show" and two years as Paul Stewart on "As the World Turns". His final TV appearance before turning full-time to producing was a guest role on NBC's CHEERS in 1990.
