Gemini Man is an American science fiction television series developed by Harve Bennett and his company, Harve Bennett Productions and produced by Universal Television. Eleven episodes of the series were produced, but only five episodes aired on NBC before the program was cancelled. The series borrows many elements from the 1975 TV series The Invisible Man (also developed by Harve Bennett), which in turn was based on the 1897 Invisible Man novella written by H. G. Wells. Gemini Man starred Ben Murphy in the role of Sam Casey - a secret agent who could turn himself invisible for only fifteen minutes a day. The show also starred William Sylvester as his boss, Leonard Driscoll, and Katherine Crawford as Abby Lawrence.
