Gardner's small-town district attorney, Doug Selby, came to TV in this pilot that has him investigating a swimming pool murder of a gambler, a questionable car crash and a huge insurance claim. Hutton was more successful subsequently in bringing another fictional detective, Ellery Queen, to television. This pilot to a prospective "Doug Selby" series was filmed in 1969.
