“How’s this for a mystery?…” Remington Steele aired on NBC from 1982 to 1987. It was designed to be a starring vehicle for actress Stephanie Zimbalist, who played Laura Holt – who has to make up a male superior because no one would hire a female detective. As originally conceived, the man Remington Steele would not exist; then producer Michael Gleason thought, wouldn’t it be hilarious if he somehow showed up and drove her nuts? An unknown British actor named Pierce Brosnan auditioned for the new role and got the part; the rest is James Bond history. We have 55 episodes below.
