Storyline

Carole Stanwyck and Sydney Kovak have nothing in common; they are the polar opposites of one another. Carole is a former socialite, who lost her fortune and is now making a living as a photographer and a courier. Sydney's father's a con-man, so she knows her way around the streets. She is also a pick pocket and a jazz bass player. The only thing that they have in common is the fact that they were both married Raymond Caulfield, a private investigator. When he was killed he left everything including his agency to them. After apprehending the one who killed him, they decided to run the agency themselves. Helping them is Shain, Raymond's assistant, Raymond's mother, Jeanine, and Police Lieutenant Vronsky. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

VIP meets Cagney & Lacy
3 May 2001 | by (Long Beach) – See all my reviews

V.I.P meets cagney & lacy? yes, thats exactly it. i was a big fan of lynda carter on wonder woman & i liked loni anderson on wkrp. out of no where they team up to be the beautiful crime fighters in this funny show. the humor is soooo much like VIP its uncanny. & yes, in the end of each one hour episode they solve the crime! it only lasted one season, but i think it could work in television today. 1-10 (8) Z.
