1 9 8 7 – 1 9 8 9 (Canada)
43 x 60 minute episodes
Following the cancellation of their detective TV series Diamonds, its married stars, Mike (Nicholas Campbell) and Christina (Peggy Smithhart), divorce. Later, the pair become “real” private detectives and team up to open their own agency: ‘Two of Diamonds – Confidential Investigations’.
Stories relate their efforts to help clients by calling on the scripted methods they once used on their TV series.
Filmed and set in Canada, this comedy/drama – produced by Alliance Entertainment Corp – clearly owed a lot to Moonlighting.
The series originally aired on CBS Late Night in the US before switching to the USA Network. In Canada, the show was seen on Toronto-based Global Television.
