Program Notes

Peter Gunn was an American private eye television series, starring Craig Stevens as Peter Gunn with Lola Albright as his girlfriend Edie Hart, which aired on NBC from September 22, 1958, to 1960 and on ABC in 1960–1961. The series was created by Blake Edwards.

Peter Gunn is notable for being the first televised detective program whose character was created for television, instead of adapted from other media.

The series is probably best remembered today for its music, including the iconic "Peter Gunn Theme" The song was the opening track on the original soundtrack album, The Music from Peter Gunn, released in 1959. Mancini won an Emmy Award and two Grammys for Album of the Year and Best Arrangement.
