Walter Matthau starred in this half-hour crime show as Lex Rogers, a special agent for the Florida Sheriffs Bureau.
The bureau (the only one of its kind in the US) helped sheriffs in Florida’s 67 counties. Rogers hunted down muggers, armed robbers, murderers, loan sharks, and kidnappers and even posed as a convict to obtain information from a prisoner.
The twenty-six episodes were made directly for syndication by Screen Gems and filmed on location in Florida.
“Tallahassee 7000” was the telephone number of the real Florida Sheriff’s Bureau.
