CRIME SYNDICATED
----------------
CBS Television
Produced by Jerry Danzig
Directed by John Peyser

US Crime Drama Series 1951-53   60 episodes x 30 min (18Sep51-23Jun53)

Hosted and Narrated by Rudolph Halley
as Investigator for the Congressional Crime Committee, chaired by Senator Estes Kefauver
Senator Herbert R. O'Conor

Premise:
Anthology series of Crime Dramas based on true stories.

Review: [Reno Evening Gazette 09Oct51]
"Crime Syndicated" is actually a dramatic show which appears to have gotten alot of its material out of the Kefauver hearings.
After Mr. Halley gets out of the way and the dramatic portion opens you'll find it's a very honest show full of authentic crime stories and
right now there's an awful lot of harrowing reality to draw upon and it is excellently produced, directed and acted.
While borrowing from and exploring the popular crime field CBS could still have a pretty good case in labeling this show as educational.
