Ficha en IMDb

Cannon, es una serie policiaca de televisión, emitida por la cadena CBS entre 1971 y 1976. En 1980, además, se rodó una película directamente estrenada en televisión, que continuaba las peripecias del personaje que da título a la serie y protagonizada por el mismo actor, bajo el título de The Return of Frank Cannon.



Frank Cannon es un ex-policía, reconvertido a detective privado, con evidentes problemas de peso pero muy eficaz en la resolución de los casos que se le plantean. Suele presentar elevadas facturas a sus clientes de la alta sociedad para así poder igualmente investigar gratuitamente los casos que le presentan ciudadanos menos afortunados.


Entre los actores que tuvieron apariciones episódicas en la serie, figuran Tom Skerritt, Shelley Duvall, David Janssen, Mike Farrell, Sheree North, Nick Nolte, Tina Louise, Donna Mills, Robert Loggia, Peter Strauss, Claudia Jennings, Judson Pratt y David Soul.

Además Martin Sheen interpretó durante varios episodios a un ex-policía.
