Penny as Jake, a suave police detective, presumably a gigolo, that drove around in a silver porsche speedster wore fancy suits and basically, got things done.
William Conrad as a fat, gruff, unkempt district attorney with a dog called max.
It had a urban background and it worked.
Then they transferred the locale to Hawaii (presumably to reduce costs) and Jake was driving a cheaper car while at the same time, somehow he became some sort of milk-drinking/boy scout/social worker, but it still worked (kinda).
Then they really scrimped on the production values, the series stunk and , surprise! it had to be cancelled.
