US police series in which Lee Marvin played a Chicago plainclothes policeman assigned to M-Squad. Starring Lee Marvin as Lt. Frank Ballinger, of the Chicago Police Department with Paul Newlan as Captain Gray.

The Count Basie theme music and the Benny Carter background score, coupled with some incredible location shots around Chicago, made "M-Squad" much better than any plot description could ever convey, and Lee Marvin was so imposing as Ballinger, who exuded the potential for violence in his every move, that "M-Squad" ended up as one of the most memorable cop shows in history.

Executive Producer Richard Lewis. Produced by John Larkin. Produced by Maxwell Shane.
