Here is a partial list of television series and notable made-for-TV movies produced by Universal Studios, at one time one of the most prolific producers of TV programs in the United States. Universal's TV shows are notable for having a distinct "house style" and for using certain sets, stock footage, and sound effects regularly, as well as recurring cast and crew members (notably, series creators Stephen J. Cannell and Glen A. Larson, and composers Mike Post & Pete Carpenter). (Note: this will need cleaned up and formatted, and there are many more that need to be added.)
