TV Banacek (NBC 1972-1974, George Peppard, Ralph Manza) Published 8 months ago on October 4, 2018 Crime drama series with a slight twist in the premise in that Thomas Banacek was actually worked as an investigator for insurance companies winning back their stolen property taking 10% of its worth as his fee. Banacek only took big cases and unusual ones at that too such as tracing paintings stolen from a sealed truck and so on. Of Polish-American descent Banacek drove both a 1973 Fleetwood Cadillac and a 1941 Packard Darrin and also lived in Boston’s upmarket Beacon Hill area. Regulars in the show included Banacek’s chauffeur Jay Drury, his confidante Felix Mulholland who ran an antiquarian bookshop. Also during the shows second season Banacek regularly tangled with fellow investigator Carlie Kirkland. The show (made up of feature length episodes) originally appeared as part of NBC’s Mystery Movie series. The show’s creators Levinson and Link were also behind two other biggies with Columbo and Murder She Wrote. This show was also actually George Peppard’s TV lead debut. production details USA / NBC-Universal ‘Mystery Movie’ / 17×90 minute episode (including pilot) / Broadcast 1972-1974 Creators: Richard Levinson, William Link Music: Billy Goldenberg Executive Producer: George Eckstein Producer: Howie Horowitz Cast GEORGE PEPPARD as Thomas Banacek RALPH MANZA as Jay Drury MURRAY MATHESON as Felix Mulholland CHRISTINE BELFORD as Carlie Kirkland LINDEN CHILES as Penniman Anthony WilsonBilly GoldenbergCrime And MysteryDramaGeorge PeppardMysteryNBCRalph ManzaRichard LevinsonWilliam Link Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes9 hours ago On the Case with Paula Zahn: Nowhere to Run (S9EP29 ID Sun 26 May 2019) Nowhere to Run: After two girls take a trip to the mall and never come home, they are found shot...
