Synopsis

Johnny Staccato, starring legendary actor, writer and director John Cassavetes, first appeared on television in 1959, and although it lasted only 27 episodes, the unique mixture of big-city mystery-adventure and jazz left an indelible impression on a generation of TV viewers. Johnny Staccato (Cassavetes) is an ex-jazz musician/detective who would prefer to play the piano, relax on a beach, or just talk about life. At his home-away from home, Waldo's Jazz Club in Greenwich Village, Staccato is often joined at the piano by jazz musicians the likes of a young John Williams (Star Wars, Jaws), Shelly Manne, Barney Kessel, Red Norvo and Red Mitchell.

Each week Staccato finds himself drawn into cases where his distaste for crime, criminals and injustice is put to the test. From his base at Waldo's, Staccato often finds himself following leads to Rome, Paris and beyond to find solutions to the puzzling cases he takes on.

Guest stars include Michael Landon, Susan Oliver, Jack Weston, Alexander Scourby, Frank DeKova, Elizabeth Montgomery and many other notable Hollywood stars.

Long absent from the small screen, this 3 DVD set of Johnny Staccato from Timeless Media Group and NBC brings you all 27 exciting episodes of this ground-breaking and important series, fully restored and re-mastered to fully capture the noir atmosphere of New York City in the 1950's!
