CITY OF ANGELS - Starring Wayne Rogers
Wayne Rogers plays Jake Axminster, a barely ethical private investigator working in Los Angeles, California during the 1930s. Jake has little trust for anyone and is more often than not broke. His bimbo secretary Marsha helps keep money coming into the office with an escort as a side business. After Mash, Rogers complained that he was forever typecast and couldn't get a job. This series lasted 13 episodes before it was canceled.
This is one of the best detective shows of its kind. A shame it only lasted half a season because it really does have a lot going for it. Much like the movie CHINATOWN with Jack Nicholson this is a detective series based in the 1930's. Wayne Rogers really was perefectly cast as a tough detective. These 13 episodes are a real gem and very rare. If you like the great detective shows of the 1930's you will love this series.
