Woodfield formed a writing partnership with Allan Balter during production of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964). They wrote an early episode of Mission: Impossible (1966) and quickly got more work and became script consultants. By the third season of the show, they were elevated to producers. However, they clashed with executive producer Bruce Geller and left the show at its peak of popularity.
