Patrick Stewart took the lead role shortly after making a striking reference to the book, and quoting from it, in Star Trek: First Contact.
Gregory Peck appeared as Father Mapple more than forty years after he played Ahab in the 1956 film adaptation directed by John Huston.
Gregory Peck won a Golden Globe Award for best supporting actor. The series also won awards for its music, and was nominated for several Emmy Awards.
