“I Dream of Jeannie” debuted in 1965, running for five seasons. Created by author Sidney Sheldon, the show featured Barbara Eden as Jeannie and Larry Hagman as Captain Tony Nelson. Jeannie (Eden) was 2000 years old, and she fell in love with her master (Hagman) and eventually married him. Aired on NBC, and set in Florida near Cocoa Beach, it was filmed in Los Angeles. The original genie bottle was a special Christmas 1964 Jim Beam decanter.
