Peter Gunn is an American private eye series about Peter Gunn (Craig Stevens) – a well-dressed private investigator whose hair is always in place and who loves cool jazz. Where other gumshoes might be coarse, Gunn is a swanky sophisticate with expensive tastes. He operates in a nameless, fictional riverfront city working in conjunction with Lieutenant Jacoby (Herschel Bernardi) and can usually be found at Mother’s, a smoky wharfside jazz club where Gunn’s girlfriend Edie Hart (Lola Albright) also works as a sultry jazz singer. Mother’s sets the background for Gunn’s “office”, often meeting clients there. Gunn has a reputation of being honest and amongst the best investigators.
