Between January 1981 and August 1983, actor/producer Robert Blake tried three times to launch a new TV detective series titled Joe Dancer--and struck out on all three occasions. The third unsold Dancer pilot was Murder 1, Dancer 0, later syndicated as The Big Trade. This time around, the Marlowe-like Joe Dancer (Blake) investigates corruption in Hollywood, only to be framed for murder. William Prince, Joel Bailey, and Sondra Blake (then Mrs. Blake) costar. Under its original title, The Big Trade first aired August 5, 1983.
