Peter Gunn
This re-imagining of the classic post-modern Blake Edwards-Craig Stevens’ series centers on a gentleman private eye who is not above getting his bespoke suit and tie dirty, if that’s what it takes to bring down the bad guys, save his hometown and win back the love of the gal he left behind.

The Last Cop
Life can seem to pass in the blink of an eye, but for LAPD cop Mick Branigan it actually did in this project based on the hit German series.

– Executive Producers: Marcia Clark (writer), Dee Johnson (writer) and Nelson McCormick (director)

– Production Company/Studio: Warner Horizon Television.
 
Crushed
