(written from a Production point of view)
John Kneubuhl (2 July 1920 – 20 February 1992; age 71) wrote the story for the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Bread and Circuses", although he did not receive screen credit in the finished episode.
Kneubuhl has written for several other television shows, including many scripts for the Western program The Wild Wild West, for which he created the memorable villain Dr. Miguelito Loveless, portrayed by Star Trek guest actor Michael Dunn. Other shows he wrote for include Thriller, Gunsmoke, The Fugitive, and The Invaders.. He was primarily a playwright, however, with many of his plays exploring his American/Samoan heritage.
