21 Beacon Street Trivia

21 Beacon Street was a summer replacement series for The Ford Show on NBC during the summer of 1959.

The series obviously took place in a large city but the city's name was never mentioned!

21 Beacon Street was the address of detective Dennis Chase's office.

Dennis Chase was different from most TV detectives. He simply determined who the bad guy was and then sent the cops out to pick him up. He never actually pursued a criminal himself.

In a rare move, every episode of 21 Beacon Street was rerun on ABC in the second half of the 1959/1960 season!

Due to its use of 1950s "high tech" gadgetry and an expert in disguise, 21 Beacon Street is often referred to as a forerunner of the series, "Mission Impossible".
