IMDb profile

Allan Cole, with his writing partner Chris Bunch, was a story editor on Galactica 1980.

In addition to his role, he is one of four writers who wrote "The Day They Kidnapped Cleopatra," the last episode in production at the time Galactica 1980 was officially canceled by ABC, as "Alan Cole".

With his then-writing partner Chris Bunch, he wrote the military science fiction book series "The Sten Chronicles," which was sold to a production studio during the beginning of 1980's run.[1] In fact, they themselves did not want to do the series at all, but were "blackmailed" into it because of their science fiction experience.[2]

He later wrote for The A-Team ("Pure-Dee Poison" with Chris Bunch, Stephen J. Cannell and Frank Lupo), Magnum P.I. and Mrs. Columbo.
