The Booker TV show was a 60 minute drama series on the Fox Network about a former police officer who got hired by a huge company based in Japan to investigate suspicious insurance claims at their U.S. offices. He did not make the best employee, however, as he resented authority of any kind and pretty much did whatever he wanted. He actually spent very little time working on his employers' cases by constantly being sidetracked into other mysteries.

Booker Theme Song Lyrics:
Title: "Hot in the City"
Performed By: "Billy Idol"I will move with the beat now.
I'm a chain 'round an A-bomb
I'm a ribbon in the heat now
Hot in the city, hot in the city tonight, (tonight)
