Scene of the Crime is the title of a mystery anthology series that aired in 1991 and 1992 on CBS, as part of the Crimetime After Primetime late-night block. Rather than employing different actors each episode, the program had a regular cast who played different characters in each story. The series was produced in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and series regulars included Canadian character actors Stephen McHattie and Kim Coates, and producer Stephen J. Cannell appeared onscreen to introduce each story as the show's host.[1]
