TV Series
    (September 13, 1974-March 28, 1975)
    Aired on ABC
    Darren McGavin as Carl Kolchak
    Simon Oakland as Tony Vincenzo
    Ruth McDevitt as Emily Cowles

    Premise: A wire service reporter investigates murders involving the supernatural
    Universal Studios reportedly modified the title to avoid confusion with Kojak.
    McGavin complained about the 'monster of the week' aspect of the show.
    Kolchak always wore the same straw hat and seersucker suit, regardless of the season.
    After the show went off the air, ABC created two 'new' made-for-TV movies by cobbling together previously aired episodes with a new voice-over by McGavin to provide continuity.
    A 2005 revival lasted only half as long (10 episodes vs. the original's 20).
    The series was preceded by two TV movies, with the first one, 'The Night Stalker' (January 11, 1972), garnering the best ratings for a TV movie up to that time.
    Its blend of dark humor and genuine chills made it a cult favorite.
    Sopranos creator David Chase got his first regular Hollywood job as story editor for the series.
    X-Files creator Chris Carter cited 'Kolchak' as one of his inspirations.
