The Cut Man Caper originated as a 90-minute episode of the weekly TV anthology Police Story. Heading the cast is Robert Hooks as Ernie Tillis, a detective in the robbery-homicide division. On the trail of loan-company robbers, Hooks is forced to rely upon shifty informer Freddy (Lou Gossett Jr.). But the "snitch" is playing both ends down the middle-and he's also stolen the expensive miniature voice-transmitter entrusted to his care. The largely African American cast includes such old favorites as Scoey Mitchlll, Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St. Jacques. Intended as the pilot for a spinoff series (which never materialized), The Cut Man Caper debuted October 28, 1975.
