Synopsis by Hal Erickson

First telecast May 8, 1987, Harry's Hong Kong was the pilot film for an unsold TV series. The title character, played by David Soul, was a soldier of fortune at-large in the titular port city. The owner of an elaborate offshore casino, Harry Petros solves mysteries and straightens out other people's problems with the help of his Chinese-American secretary Sally (Jan Gayn Boyd) and police superintendent Max Trundle (Mike Preston). In his first, and last, adventure, Harry tackles a murder case with organized-crime overtones. Harry's Hong Kong was later syndicated as China Hand.
