Overview

Synopsis

Off the air since its cancellation in the fall of 1959, the location-filmed cop drama Naked City returned to ABC's prime-time schedule on October 12, 1960. Originally a half-hour weekly, the series had been expanded to a full hour, and was seen on Wednesdays opposite a dramatic anthology on CBS and an antiseptic sitcom on NBC. Carried over from the half-hour version are Horace McMahon as veteran New York City cop Lt. Mike Parker, and Harry Bellaver as Frank Arcaro, who during the series' year-long hiatus had been promoted from patrolman to sergeant. New to the cast is Paul Burke as Parker's young partner Detective Adam Flint, and Nancy Malone as Flint's girlfriend Libby. Also new is the series' theme song "Somewhere in the Night," written by Billy May and Milton Raskin. Still filmed in its entirety in New York City, and as often as possible on authentic locations rather than inside studio walls, the new Naked City features a number of well-known actors in the supporting casts, among them Eli Wallach, Suzanne Pleshette, Leslie Nielsen, Claude Rains, Telly Savalas, Jack Lord, Dick York, Bruce Dern, Keir Dullea, Robert Duvall, Dennis Hopper, Roddy McDowall, Ed Asner, Peter Falk, Hume Cronyn, a good-looking youngster named Robert Redford, and, in his first major TV appearance, Dustin Hoffman (in the episode "Sweet Prince of Delaney Street)." ~ Hal Erickson
