Faraday and Company is an American crime drama television series that was part of the NBC Mystery Movie. It lasted for only four episodes, which were rotated with Banacek, The Snoop Sisters, and Tenafly on Wednesday nights during the 1973–74 season.


Private investigator Frank Faraday (Dan Dailey), who'd been falsely accused of murdering his partner, escapes from a South American prison after 28 years of confinement. Returning to a Los Angeles that has greatly changed during his absence, Frank discovers that he has a full-grown son named Steve (James Naughton), who is also a private investigator. The two now work together to solve mysteries, while Frank tries to adjust to modern life. Sharon Gless plays their secretary, Holly Barrett.
