Considered one of the most violent television series of its era, this show followed the adventures of Los Angeles, California private investigator Joe Mannix, who first worked for a detective agency known as Intertect, which relied heavily on computers and a large network of operatives. In the second season, Mannix opened his own agency, with police widow Peggy Fair working for him as his secretary. Each episode featured plenty of fistfights, car chases, and shoot-outs.

Did You Know?


Mannix was of Armenian descent, and spoke fluent Armenian and French. In the opening credits, the screen that says "Mike Connors is" features the colors (red, blue, and orange) and shape (three rectangles) of the Armenian flag. See more »


Throughout the series, Mannix has numerous interactions with the Los Angeles Police Department. The cars represented, however, are not similar to those used by Los Angeles; for one thing, the emergency equipment is different: while sometimes the correct arrangement for the period is shown (two light units side by side with a siren speaker in between), usually the police cars have a rotary beacon on top with an electromechanical siren under the hood, which is incorrect.
