(ABC, 10/21/1969, 90 mins). This unsuccessful private eye series pilot was developed by Blake Edwards, trying to recapture the glory of his earlier “Peter Gunn” and “Mr. Lucky.” A gumshoe named Monk is somewhat embarrassed after finding himself the prime suspect in the murder of an underworld attorney who had hired him to guard a valuable envelope containing incriminating evidence on a syndicate bigwig.
