Palace Guard was a CBS dramatic series that aired for only three episodes before it was cancelled.
Palace Guard followed the career of Tommy Logan, an ex-con and prolific jewel thief and cat burglar who had been hired by the Palace chain of luxury hotels as head of security. It helped that the owner of the chain, Arturo Taft, was also Tommy's illegitimate father, a secret kept from Tommy.
The bulk of the stories came from Tommy's interaction with his boss, Christy Cooper, who was very skeptical and untrusting of the ex-con. However, Tommy employed his knowledge of criminal methods to consistently thwart crimes at the Palace Hotels.
