I used to love this show as a kid. The star, Tony Mustante, only wanted to do one season. When it was a success the producers thought he would renew his deal, but he quit so they hired Robert Blake and turned it into Baretta. I was reminded of this show while watching Frank Sinatra in a movie called The Detective from 1968. Tony Musante plays a minor role in the film.

I haven’t seen the show since I was in high school, so I’m curious if it was as good as I remember. It had a couple other fine actors in it like Simon Oakland, Abe Vigoda and Philip Michael Thomas of Miami Vice in one of his earliest roles.
