Not-good Pilot
21 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty weak entry for the The Police Story anthology series with Angie Dickinson as Lisa Beaumont. She joins "Ad/Vice" and goes undercover as a hooker/hostess for a string of illegal casinos in Los Angeles run by Joseph Campanella and Cesare Danova. Nice appearances by Jeff Morrow and Corinne Calvet as a john and a madame who Lisa busts her first time out. The series "Police Woman" followed with much harder stories (bank robbery/murder, porn/murder) and the Lisa Beaumont name changed to Pepper Anderson with Earl Holliman substituting for the very weak Bert Convy as Lt. Bill Crowley, Pepper's boss. Appearances by many "stars" old and new (Skip Homeier, Karen Lamm) make the series a happy hunting ground for those with sharp eyes and keen memories.
