Spenser: For Hire is a mystery television series based on Robert B. Parker's "Spenser" novels. Spenser, played by Robert Urich, operated out of Boston and got involved in a new mystery (often a murder) each episode. It ran on ABC from1985 to 1988.
*7.4 stars on IMDb*!!!
The other major characters were Hawk, played by Avery Brooks, and Susan Silverman, played by Barbara Stock. Stock left the show in its second season and was replaced by Carolyn McCormick as Rita Fiori. Stock returned for the final season. In 1989, Brooks received his own, short-lived spinoff series, A Man Called Hawk.
During the early 1990s, Urich and Brooks reunited for several made-for-TV films based upon the original series. Barbara Stock was replaced in the first two made for TV movies by Barbara Williams and in the other two by veteran actress Wendy Crewson (Air Force One).
Unfortunately, the series has not been released. However, the Spenser for Hire movies are available on DVD.
