Robert Redford started his career in TV - with guest spots on "The Twilight Zone," "Perry Mason" and plenty of live drama - and now he's going back.

Redford will introduce a series of movies, "Robert Redford Presents...", launching Saturday on the Sundance Channel, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Redford founded the Sundance Channel, a cable-TV offshoot of his Sundance Institute, and is the channel's creative director.

The first movie Redford will introduce is "The Crucible," Nicholas Hytner's 1996 adaptation of Arthur Miller's famous play about the Salem witch trials, starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Winona Ryder.

Other movies slated in the series are "Domino" (starring Keira Knightley), David Lynch's "Blue Velvet," and Nia Vardalos' "I Hate Valentine's Day."
