Former bunco detective Frank MacBride joins forces with a con artist he once sent to jail, Pete Ryan, to operate their own private detective agency. Most of their cases involve running cons on the bad guys in order to trick them into surrendering or revealing the whereabouts of the stolen loot, jewels, etc. Maggie was their cute receptionist, and wacky restauranteur Malcolm, whose mastery of disguise often came in handy in helping MacBride and Ryan on their cases, provided the comic relief.

I agree: odd that so much dross is endlessly recycled and yet this perfectly respectable little series seemed to have disappeared off everybody's radar. I particularly liked the theme tune written by Stu Philips and executive producer Glen A Larson.
Perhaps it was the title which seemed to have little to do in the way of describing the action, and even less for the brain to latch on to.... "switch.. Switch?? what on earth was that?"
"A series about a conman and a cop.... Eddie Albert and Robert Vaughan... surely you remember ?... NO?
How it goes sometimes..
