Honey West, starring Anne Francis, was the first female detective to be featured in a weekly American television series.
The character first appeared in a series of novels by G.G. Fickling. Honey inherited the family detective business from her father. Her partner, Sam Bolt (John Ericson), was also included in the deal, and the love of Honey`s life
was her pet ocelot, Bruce.
Honey made her first TV appearance in â€œWho Killed The Jackpot?â€, an episode
of another quirky detective series, â€œBurke`s Law,â€ in April 1965. This TV debut
appears on this four disc DVD collection alongside all 30 episodes of Honey West.
In spite of having episodes produced by Aaron Spelling and using some of the top scriptwriters in Hollywood, Honey West only lasted one season, and this box set is a tribute to this stylish, cool and tongue in cheek show which blazed
a trail for female felony investigators.
