A smart and sophisticated mystery in the vein of "The Thin Man," Hugh Laurie and Liz Vassey shine in this unaired pilot which, in a just universe, should still be running on TV today.
Hugh Laurie writes and stars in the title role of Mike Dragan, a former detective with Scotland Yard turned world traveler, with his wealthy and beautiful wife, Rachel.
