Sgt. Daniel Stone has been moonlighting as a writer and after he becomes a success with lots of fans, it leads to resentment on the force. Former friend Chief Paulson is among those unhappy, not so rookie Buck Rogers.
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.Written by

Robert Wagner is an ex-con. Eddie Albert is an ex-cop. Together they make a highly unorthodox, highly entertaining team of private eyes, who know all the ins and outs and in-betweens of both sides of the law. See more »
According to Glen A. Larson, Eddie Albert wanted to play Pete Ryan, so that his character could get the girl, when he eventually got Frank MacBride, instead, and came to work with a sweatshirt that went past his knees, and Albert's character was supposed to be the inexpensive police officer, that wasn't flashy.

This was a pretty good detective show. I love the fact that this is one of those hour dramas that really didn't take itself seriously as most detective shows did. This show and "The Rockford Files" had a knack for poking fun at the detective genre. Also, Charlie Callas helped increase the fun factor, especially when Pete and Mac moved their office to the room above Malcolm's restaurant. This is definitely an underrated show.
