In this pilot film for a never-sold weekly series, Paul Hecht stars as Joe Tyler, a former Army intelligence officer turned private investigator. For a tidy fee of 5,000 dollars, Tyler agrees to impersonate a businessman who has been slated for assassination. Unearthing a vast conspiracy to defraud a land-development firm, the hero may well get blown to bits before he can make his findings public. Clearly, the planned series was to have Paul Hecht pose as a different person each week, with similar explosive results. The Impostor was broadcast by NBC on March 18, 1975.
