Follow the Sun is an American television adventure series that aired on ABC from September 17, 1961 to April 8, 1962.[1] The episodes follow a pair of freelance magazine writers based in Hawaii who seek out interesting stories while leading an active social life both on the mainland and aboard their boat, The Scuber.[1][2] The series is characterized by a host of guest appearances by popular film and television actors.

Dell Comics issued a contemporaneous series of comic books based on the show in 1961 and 1962.


The series was co-produced by Roy Huggins and Marion Hargrove at 20th Century Fox.[3] The plotline was designed as a follow-up to Hong Kong, which Huggins had lately produced, "with two freelance journalists based in Honolulu encountering mystery and their fair share of beautiful women in their weekly Hawaiian adventures".[3] Hargrove left the project after the fifth episode and Huggins reworked the cast list, downgrading Gary Lockwood from one of the reporters to a scout, and upgrading Brett Halsey to the journalist position. Huggins also began alternating the episodes to star one or the other of the two lead characters.[3]
