The radio program spawned the film and the Buck Rogers TV series that ran from 1979 to 1981.
No production schedule was released for the film.
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century was released March 30th, 1979 and stars Gil Gerard, Pamela Hensley, Erin Gray, Henry Silva, Tim O'Connor, Joseph Wiseman, Duke Butler, Felix Silla. The film is directed by Daniel Haller.
