Burke's Law - 1963-1966

Amos Burke

Amos Burke was the head of the Detectives Bureau of the Los Angeles Police Force, but he was also a millionaire with a chauffeur and a Rolls Royce and a magnificent mansion. The shows always had glamourous women chasing after Burke, and usually featured movie and television stars in each week's cast. Frank D. Gilroy created the series, and Gene Barry starred as Amos Burk. The only show that we have been able to obtain is one titled 'Who Killed Jason Shaw?' This is a special episode because it was scheduled to air on Friday evening November 22, 1963, but ABC cancelled that evening's shows for live coverage of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It was re-scheduled for January 3, 1964.
