News: New NBC Mystery Series Debut Tonight

Mysteries on TVIn the "Mysteries on TV (but not yet available on DVD)" category, a new half-hour comedy mystery series debuts tonight on NBC at 9:30 PM ET: Andy Barker, P. I. NBC is also making the first six episodes of the series available as streaming video on its website.

Andy Barker, an earnest, hard-working CPA who has succeeded at everything -- until his new accounting business fails to take off. But when he's mistaken for Lew Staziak, the retired private detective who used to occupy his store-front office, Andy embraces the twist of fate and dives into his double life.

The series was created by Conan O'Brien and stars Andy Richter as Andy Barker.

Stay tuned on NBC tonight when the pilot for the new mystery series Raines, an inventive police drama that blends traditional noir storytelling with humor and intrigue, debuts at 10:00 PM ET. Eccentric LAPD Detective Michael Raines (played by Jeff Goldblum) uses his unique imagination to focus on every murder case in such a way that the murder victims actually begin to take shape in front of him. At first, he thinks he's losing his mind, but he then uses the constantly evolving hallucinations -- which are figments of his imagination and not ghosts -- to help him discover the victims' killers. Raines struggles to accept this peculiar gift -- or burden -- and reconcile it with his daily life.

NBC also plans on having episodes of this series available as streaming video on its website, but as of this morning only the pilot was available to view.
