This led to guest roles on Men into Space and Lawman, as well as his first credited film appearance in Bloodlust! In 1961, Reed landed his first television starring role in The Defenders alongside fellow Studebaker Theater performer E. Marshall, with the two playing a father-and-son team of defense attorneys. Appearing in the Neil Simon play Barefoot in the Park led to two new contracts at Paramount Pictures and ABC, both in 1968. From the sitcom's debut in September 1969, Reed was unhappy with his role as Mike Brady.

The Defenders was a hit with audiences and earned a total of 22 Primetime Emmy Award nominations (E. Marshall won two Emmys for his performance while the show won twice for Outstanding Drama Series). When Paramount had decided to turn the television version of Barefoot in the Park into a predominantly African-American show, they planned for Reed to star in something else. He felt that acting in the often silly sitcom was beneath his serious Shakespearean training.

Despite his discontent with the show, Reed genuinely liked his co-stars and was a father figure to the younger cast members.

Reed's final appearance in the series was in the penultimate episode, "The Hustler".

He won critical acclaim for his portrayal of Pat Caddison, a doctor who comes out as transgender, in a two-part episode of Medical Center in 1975.

Despite being critically acclaimed, the series was canceled the following year.

His father worked for the government, and his mother was a homemaker.

Reed spent his early childhood years in Navasota, Texas and Shawnee, Oklahoma, attending Woodrow Wilson Grade School before the family moved to Muskogee, Oklahoma.

Despite his dislike of The Brady Bunch, Reed continued to appear in Brady Bunch spin-offs and sequels for the remainder of his career.

In 1976, Reed reprised the role of Mike Brady in the variety show The Brady Bunch Hour, a role he openly embraced because it afforded him the opportunity to sing and dance.

His final line in that episode was "Now I can get my car in the garage." During the run of The Brady Bunch, Reed also had a recurring role as Lieutenant Adam Tobias on Mannix, from 1969 to 1975, After Reed's agents overbooked him for a film with Anglia Television, his cancellation led to the 1972 court case of Anglia Television Ltd v Reed.
