Robert Butler originally pitched the show to MTM as detective Laura Holt running a detective agency belonging to a male superior, whom she invented for business purposes. MTM put Butler in contact with Michael Gleason, who suggested the chaos that would ensue if the invented superior turned up one day, and the character of Remington Steele was created. See more »

Remington Steele is one of my favorite TV series. It had everything: fun, romance, mystery, suspense, and three great leading actors, Stephanie Zimbalist, Pierce Brosnan and Doris Roberts. They were a winning combination. I would love to have the entire series on DVD. Although, I have some complete episodes on video tape, tapes wear out, and I'm hoping for a DVD set to preserve such a wonderful series for posterity.
Stephanie Zimbalist played Laura Holt beautifully. She was a character I admired, a woman striking out on her own, even though she initially had to use deception to get her business on track. Pierce Brosnan was charming as the mysterious con man. Who can forget the wild antics of Doris Roberts as Mildred Krebs, especially the time she was involved in the Steele, Inc. scheme to open a chain of Remington Steele agencies without the knowledge of Laura or Steele?
This is a series that MUST find a place on DVD shelves everywhere.
