Shannon has no attractive secretary like other private eyes at the time because in his car sits a dictating machine where he recites his reports for Cochran. Shannon is the original multi-tasker. Press a button and a movie camera pops up or a hidden gun appears. The show is based in Los Angeles and offers up some vintage street scenes of early 60's LA. Shannon was produced by Screen Gems/Columbia Pictures and the show was syndicated which was unusual at the time. Smaller production companies syndicated shows for local stations not major studios.
