Andy Barker: The Complete Series, a Mystery TV Series
Information on Andy Barker: The Complete Series

was a short-lived series on NBC that starred Andy Richter as the titular character, an accountant who becomes a private investigator when he takes over the office of a former tenant and is mistaken for him when a client needs his help.

Despite an impressive array of writing talent led by Conan O'Brien, and generally positive reviews, only six episodes were filmed. In an unusual move, and in an effort to build word-of-mouth publicity, the network made the series available to view online before it aired the premiere. Unfortunately ratings weren't all that terrific, and the network canceled the series after the fourth episode.

The Andy Barker: The Complete Series DVD set of 2 discs contain the 6 episodes that aired during March and April 2007. Episode titles were variations of classic mystery titles (e.g. "Fairway, My Lovely" and "Dial M for Laptop").
