Cool Million is an American crime drama series that aired on NBC as an element in its "wheel series" The NBC Wednesday Mystery Movie during its 1972-73 schedule.

Synopsis[edit]

Cool Million stars James Farentino as Jefferson Keyes, a former CIA agent who had left The Company and started his own private detective agency. He had become so successful that he now charged his prospective clients a fee of $1,000,000 (hence the title) per case, which enabled him to live a fabulous lifestyle including his own executive jet.

Barbara Bouchet guest starred in the 1972 season.

Reception[edit]

Cool Million proved to be less successful than several other elements of the NBC Mystery Movie and was not renewed for further episodes after its initial order.
