Premise: Stories of the San Diego Police Department

News Article "Syracuse Herald" 08Oct59:
"I think this is the sort of series you will have to watch four or five weeks," Victor Jory said. "It has to
build a following, sort of let the viewer get the feel of the show." Jory the star of the new "Manhunt" series
admitted that he might have a few qualms about the show. "Will we be confused with the other detective series?"
he repeated a question put to him. "I'm always worried about that". Jory considers "Manhunt" to be a dialogue
series, not an action show. He pointed out that "there is a minimum of violence. In the first 11 episodes I only
fire my gun twice and there is just one fight." Although Manhunt concerns the activities of the San Diego police
department, the stories are not necessarily from official files, the star explained. However, all are based on
fact and there is a good chance that this could be the most accurate of any police series.
"They keep a lieutenant of detectives with us at all times," Jory said. "And, the San Diego police have to pass
on every script. There's no fooling around about that either. If they don't pass on a story we don't do it."
Jory was a bit apprehensive about taking on a series, but three factors finally persuaded him. "First of all,
the money is fantastic. It places me in the 85 to 90 per cent bracket. "Second, I have a nice home and family,
but I seldom had a chance to see them. This means now I'll be home at least a year. And, I now have 10 weeks off
for the first time. It's wonderful. I have no need, financial or otherwise, to be working during that time."

Note: Not to be confused with the earlier series:
