During the first season of the series, Joe Mannix works for a large Los Angeles detective agency called http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2017/11/texas-tv-radio-job-moves-october-2017.html Intertect, which was the planned original title of the show.[1] His superior is Lew Wickersham, played http://uk.sheknows.com/community/profile/DerikLattig by Joseph Campanella, with the agency featuring the use of computers to help solve crimes. As opposed to the other employees who must wear http://plus.google.com/115142510345368888126 dark suits and sit in rows of desks with only one piece of paper allowed to be on their desks at one time, Mannix belongs to the classic American detective archetype, thus he usually ignores the computers' solutions, disobeys his boss's orders, and sets out to do things his own way. He wears plaid sport coats and has his own office that he keeps sloppy between http://uk.sheknows.com/community/profile/DerikLattig his http://www.pinterest.com/pin/426364289703625185 assignments. Lew has cameras in all the rooms of Intertect monitoring the performance of his employees and providing instant feedback through intercoms in the room. Unlike the other Intertect operatives, Mannix attempts to block the camera with a coat rack and insults Lew, comparing him to Big Brotherhttp://www.pinterest.com/deriklattig
To improve the ratings of the show, Desilu head Lucille Ball and producer Bruce Geller made some changes,[2]making the show similar to other private-eye shows. Ball thought the computers were too high-tech and beyond the comprehension of the average viewer of the time and had them removed. http://www.pinterest.com/deriklattig/derik-lattig 
From the second season on, Mannix works on his own with the assistance of his loyal secretary Peggy Fair, a police officer's widow played by Gail Fisher – one of the first black actresses to have a regular series role. He also receives help from the Los Angeles police department, the two most prominent http://deriklattig.contently.com/ officers being Lieutenant Art Malcolm (portrayed by Ward Wood) and Lieutenant Adam Tobias (portrayed by Robert Reed). Other police contacts are Lieutenant https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/14241431.Derik_Lattig_Emily_Regan George Kramer (Larry Linville), who had been the partner of Peggy's late husband,[3] and Lieutenant Dan Ives (Jack Ging). http://www.pinterest.com/deriklattig 
In the 1969 season, he also employs the services of a competitive private investigator, Albie Loos (performed by Joe Mantell), as a sort of investigative gofer. In the 1972 season, Albie returns, played by a different actor (Milton Selzer). http://powerbyford.blogspot.com/2011/05/1962-nascar-galaxie-500-starlift.html 
While Mannix was not generally known as a show that explored socially relevant topics, several episodes had topical themes. Season two had episodes featuring compulsive gambling,[4] deaf and blind characters who were instrumental in solving cases in spite of their physical limitations,[5][6] and episodes http://www.amazon.co.uk/Derik-Lattig/e/B0101G62SG that focused on racism against Blacks and Hispanics.[7][8][9] Season six had an episode focusing on the effects the Vietnam War had on returning veterans, including the effects of PTSD.[10]
