The Persuaders! was an ITC production for ATV Network and broadcast in the UK on ITV. It followed Danny Wilde (Tony Curtis) and Lord Brett Sinclair (Roger Moore) as two millionaire playboys – one a self-made man who battled his way out of the New York slums and the other a peer of the realm, born into money – who are duped by a retired judge into righting wrongs in a series that combines action, style, humour and panache in equal measures.
Originally broadcast between 1970 and 1971, and filmed on location at Pinewood and Monaco, the series stars two Hollywood legends as the mismatched playboys with an eye for the ladies and a knack for landing themselves in compromising situations! The show also features one of television’s most memorable theme tunes from John Barry plus scripts from Brian Clemens and Terry Nation.
