"There are eight million stories in the Naked City "...

Named City aired on ABC for four seasons from September 30, 1958 to May 29, 1963 and ran for a total of 138 episodes of which 99 were sixty minutes in length and 39 were thirty minutes in length.  The idea for the episode came from a 1948 film with the same title. 

Naked City was filmed in New York City and the plots were about the detectives that work for the New York Police Department.  Each episode would mainly focus on issues with various criminals and victims.

The program was not so well received in the beginning when it was only 30 minutes in length and the main character even left the series by killing himself off so he could relocate back to the West Coast.  However, after ABC cancelled the program in 1959, one of the shows sponsors fought to get the network to bring it back to the air but as one hour episodes.  The series then became more successful and remained on the air until 1963.
