REMINGTON STEELE was on TV from 1982 to 1987 and starred Stephanie Zimbalist and Pierce Brosnan. It was a light romantic detective series. Their chemistry worked for a while-and then it didn't. But in the early years, it gave us lots of pleasure. More a romance than a detective series, it still managed to put out 20 some episodes a year with concrete plots.
It began like this:Try this for a deep, dark secret. The great detective Remington Steele? He doesn't exist. I invented him.
I always loved excitement, so I studied and apprenticed, and put my name on an office. But absolutely nobody knocked down my door. A female private investigator seemed so . . . feminine. So I invented a superior. A decidedly masculine superior.
Suddenly, there were cases around the block. It was working like a charm. Until the day he walked in.
With his blue eyes and mysterious past, and before I knew it, he assumed Remington Steele's identity.
Now I do the work and he takes the bows.
It's a dangerous way to live, but as long as people buy it, I can get the job done.
We never mix business with pleasure. Well, almost never. I don't even know his real name.
We know what happened to Pierce Brosnan but what happened to Stephanie Zimbalist?
