robert pilot series producer

(NBC, 3/15/1971, 120 mins). An atmospheric pilot for the series (1972-73) about a private eye working the Los Angeles beat circa 1937. In this outing, he’s embarrassed when a girl his client is found murdered in his office with his gun. The subsequent series starring Robert Forster found Joan Blondell (in Hermione Gingold’s pilot role) as the head of the secretarial school who kept Banyon supplied with temporary help, and Richard Jaeckel playing Banyon’s reluctant police contact in the department.
