Mike and Bob Brannigan
Created by --
The Brothers Branigan was an early sixties TV show relating the cases of MIKE and BOB BRANNIGAN, two brothers working as private eyes out of a resort in Phoenix, Arizona. Their cases usually involved insurance fraud, theft, divorce or murder. Of course, both brothers being bachelors, they tend to hang out at pools and bars, flirting with the "chicks" when they're not working.
Bob was the more serious, professional brother, Mike the poetry-quoting romantic, constantly in trouble with various women. As always, there was sibling rivalry to contend with. They lived together in a large luxury apartment, complete with a maid and a doorman. The rivalry between the brothers and (for the time) unusual setting weren't enough, however, to compensate for weak scripts, and the show only lasted one season.
But the idea seems to have had legs...twenty years later it was dusted off, and Simon and Simon became a huge hit.
