The Man Called Sloane was a 1979-80 TV series starring Robert Conrad as secret agent Thomas Remington Sloane III. T. R. Sloane was an operative of a "good" spy organization called UNIT; the bad guys worked for another acronymic concern called KARTEL. In 1981, a year after the cancellation of Man Called Sloane, a TV movie titled T.R. Sloane began making the rounds, starring Robert Logan as Sloane and Anne Turkel as another UNIT operative. This film found our man Sloane saving the world from being blown to hamburger by a superweapon. Perhaps T. R. Sloane was a long-suppressed pilot film, or perhaps it was a belated effort at a Man Called Sloane spin-off minus Bob Conrad.
