The Night of the Deadly Bed was the first of ten episodes produced by Fred Freiberger, brought in to replace Collier Young after the latter had done only three episodes. Young had tried to push the show in a more comic direction, much to the dissatisfaction of CBS. Director Bill Whitney said that the shot involving the "deadly bed" required a stunt so dangerous that he refused to let Conrad do it. Conrad, however, was equally adamant about doing the stunt himself. The set was closed down for several hours during the ensuing argument, which Conrad won.
