mcclure william dodd davis

(NBC, 12/2/1972, 120 mins). A lighthearted whodunit involving a retired lady judge (Bette Davis), who is a hypochondriac now running a private detective agency, with a charming ex-con as her leg man (Doug McClure) and various parolees helping in the day-to-day operation. This prospective pilot failed to catch on and later was tried once more with Lee Grant and Lou Antonio in the Davis/McClure roles.
