The U.S. Postal Service today unveiled its plans for new commemorative stamps next year, and a series it will unveil Aug. 11 is dedicated to classic early TV programs.

Among programs to be commemorated in the 20-stamp series: "I Love Lucy"; "You Bet Your Life"; "Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet"; "Alfred Hitchcock Presents"; "Dinah Shore Show"; "Dragnet"; "Ed Sullivan Show"; "George Burns & Gracie Allen Show"; "Hopalong Cassidy"; "The Honeymooners"; "Howdy Doody"; "Kukla, Fran and Ollie"; "Lassie"; "The Lone Ranger"; "Perry Mason"; "Phil Silvers Show"; "Red Skelton"; "Texaco Star Theater"; "Tonight Show" and "Twilight Zone."

The Postal Service said the dedication of the stamps is slated to take place -- where else? -- in the heart of Hollywood: Los Angeles.
