The Irwin Allen News Network


The Irwin Allen News Network (IANN) website is devoted to the history of Irwin Allen, the producer and director known for his contributions to Lost in Space, Land of the Giants, and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

Born in 1916, Irwin Allen was an influential Hollywood television and movie producer active from 1950 to the mid-1980s. His credits include The Swarm, Swiss Family Robinson, The Towering Inferno, The Poseidon Adventure, and many other classics. IANN preserves his entertainment legacy. Allen’s many contributions are documented through photos, stories, production notes, artwork, production directories, and more.

Many classic toys based on Irwin Allen productions are now highly collectible. IANN’s Collectibles section provides updates on recent and upcoming auctions of electronic toys, games, lunch boxes, sticker set, trading cards, and other objects that appeal to collectors and those interested in owning a piece of their childhood.
