Storyline

George Nader is Joe Shannon, an insurance investigator for the Transport Bonding and Insurance Company, who is assigned cases by his boss Bill Cochran, played by Regis Toomey. The main character of Shannon is his 1961 Buick which is specially equipped with every high-tech gadget from that period. Shannon has no attractive secretary like other private eyes at the time because in his car sits a dictating machine where he recites his reports for Cochran. Shannon is the original multi-tasker. Press a button and a movie camera pops up or a hidden gun appears. The show is based in Los Angeles and offers up some vintage street scenes of early 60's LA. Shannon was produced by Screen Gems/Columbia Pictures and the show was syndicated which was unusual at the time. Smaller production companies syndicated shows for local stations not major studios.

Man with a camera
10 April 2016 | by badlandSee all my reviews

Nobody's here, but I remember Shannon. It was one of those series that were mostly syndicated rather than network. It's not another Shannon which was in the 80's. I remember this with George Nader who was sort of another hunk guy like Rock Hudson but never made it to the big show. It didn't help that he took being out in order to cover Rock Hudson. Apparently Hudson left him money since George took the fall.

Anyways, I just liked his syndie show where he was an insurance guy who looked for people who lied about their insurance claims. He had a neat film camera in his car, between the front seats and he could flip a switch and the camera would rise up and film the bad insurance claims.

I suppose this is more about me as it was one of those TV shows in early 1960's that were syndies that I always liked because they didn't have as much money so they had to work out better ideas. Wish I could see more of those syndies.

Well, George, never knew you, but I remembered you with all the other syndie shows like Sea Hunt and many others.

IMDb should find more about this series.
