City of Angels (1976)

Show Summary

Wayne Rogers plays Jake Axminster, a barely ethical private investigator working in Los Angeles, California during the 1930s. Jake has little trust for anyone and is more often than not broke. His bimbo secretary Marsha helps keep money coming into the office with an escort side business. After Mash, Rogers complained that he was forever typecast and couldn't get a job. This series lasted 13 episodes before it was canceled.

    This show was a detective drama set in 1930s Los Angeles (City Of Angels-get it?). Wayne Rogers played Jake Axminster, a private eye with his own code of ethics and, of course, perpetual money problems. Any similarity with the movie Chinatown was strictly on purpose. Jake even had a goofball secretary to bounce wise-cracks off of. The best thing about this show were the beautiful vintage automobiles used during its short run.moreless
