Russ Andrews and Steve Banks
RUSS ANDREWS, STEVE BANKS, and junior operative Bill Davis, were hotshot investigators for the prestigious, swanky New York-based Investigators, Inc., in this 1961 TV show that attempted to milk the popularity of 77 Sunset Strip, Hawaiian Eye, et al. They specialized in investigating fradulent or suspicious high-priced insurance claims, and often enlisted the aid of their secretary and sometime undercover op, Maggie Peters.
Although the show was short-lived (only 13 episodes), James Franciscus, who played Russ, must have picked up ba few pointers on the insurance investigation racket. A decade later, he popped up again, as another insurance investigator, Mike Longstreet.
