Partners in Crime is an American television series set in San Francisco, California, that aired on NBC from September to December 1984 during the 1984–85 U.S. television season. NBC cancelled the show after 13 episodes. It was screened overseas as Fifty/Fifty, to avoid confusion with the British series Agatha Christie's Partners in Crime which was also shown on ITV in the United Kingdom.
The series starred Lynda Carter as Carole Stanwyck and Loni Anderson as Sydney Kovack, two women with little in common except sharing Raymond as an ex-husband. When Raymond winds up murdered, Carole and Sydney set out to find his killer and eventually decide to run the detective agency Raymond has left them. They were assisted in their efforts by Raymond's assistant (Walter Olkewicz), Raymond's mother (Eileen Heckart), and Lt. Vronsky (Leo Rossi).
