This NBC crime drama series starred Darren McGavin as David Ross, an embittered ex-con who now worked as a private detective in Los Angeles.

Ross lived in a moderately furnished apartment at 36841 Braxton. There was a refrigerator but no food (he seemed to survive on the one bottle of milk in it).

He made “less than $10,000 a year”, drove a beat-up sedan and should have looked dishevelled. But the opposite was true and he was, in fact, well dressed, charming and polite – or rugged and two fisted, depending on the situation!

Darren McGavin provided the narration as Ross used his wits to solve crimes.
