Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Overture was the pilot episode for the Anglo-American TV series The Persuaders. Tony Curtis and Roger Moore star as American Danny Wilde and Britisher Lord Brett Sinclair. Danny's a self-made millionaire; Lord Brett's vast wealth is inherited. Both share common interests: a taste for adventure, and a fondness for beautiful women. While attending a party, they are tricked into becoming espionage agents by retired Judge Fulton (Laurence Naismith). Once they've had their "shakedown" adventure, they're off to the Mediterranean for another escapade. The Persuaders was first telecast in the US from September 18, 1971 to June 14, 1972.
