For The First Time Ever
The Four Top-Rated SPENSER Movies
In One Explosive Collection
Following the surprise cancellation of the hit series Spenser: For Hire, ABC produced four full-length movies starring the late Robert Urich as the wisecracking-but-deadly Boston detective. Avery Brooks (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) co-stars as ‘Hawk’ in these television events based on the best-selling books by Robert B. Parker that The New York Times calls "one of the great series in the history of the American detective story."
When a 16-year-old girl disappears into Boston’s sleazy underbelly, Spenser and Hawk pull the trigger on a teen pornography ring that leads to a shocking final twist.
Spenser, his ‘lady shrink’ girlfriend Susan Silverman, and Hawk investigate a brutal murder in a quaint New England town where snow falls in kilo packages.
Spenser is hired out-of-town and may be out of his league when a terrorist group with a taste for car bombs targets a controversial African leader.
A TV news cameraman is found murdered, and Spencer is hired by an old flame to investigate a movie producer who may be shooting more than film.
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.
