Peppard originally signed to star in a weekly hour series, but NBC instead chose to make "Banacek" a 90-minute show that would alternate with two other series on NBC Wednesday Mystery Movie. Peppard's contract was not modified, however, leaving him free to leave the series after two seasons to pursue other projects. See more »
I just wanted to clarify something. Banacek was indeed an insurance investigator. From reading a lot of the posts on the board i get the impression that people thought he worked for Boston Insurance such as an employee would. If I'm not mistaken i believe he was an independent contractor whom Boston Insurance hired/used when they needed something found. Not quite the same as actually working for them. He worked for himself and contracted to or with them on an as needed basis. Wouldn't it be totally awesome to be able to earn anywhere from $200,000 up to close to a million for like 48 hours work> Wow if anyone knows where a person can sign up for such a job please pass it along LOL Only in the annuls of television. Isn't it great :-) Mike
