Premise:
The push for spy shows prompted by James Bond pushed Amos Burke
out of his cushy job with the San Francisco Police Department and into the
life of an international espionage agent who received his orders from a
mysterious man aboard a plane. It didn't help the series, though, which didn't run a full season.
