Partners in Crime is an American television series set in San Francisco, California, that aired on NBC during the 1984-85 television season. NBC cancelled the show after 13 episodes on December 29, 1984.

It was screened overseas as Fifty/Fifty to avoid confusion with the 1983 British series of the same name (which was also shown on ITV in the UK).


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).
