This Is Your FBI, as the title suggests, was a crime drama that featured true cases from FBI, and told from an agent’s viewpoint. The show’s producer and director, Jerry Devine, has previously worked on the radio program of the same genre, Mr. District Attorney. Devine once worked for the FBI, so having him for the show would allow each story to be told the best way possible. Then-FBI chief Edgar Hoover gave him access to the FBI files for the stories used in the show.
The show’s main character was Agent Jim Taylor, who handled crime cases on the West Coast. The basic format of the show was that, 30 minutes were allowed for the presentation of the criminal’s actions, which will be followed up with Taylor’s investigation of the crime. This long-running series starred Frank Lovejoy (and later Dean Carlton and William Woodson) as the narrator, Betty White, and Stacy Harris as Agent Jim Taylor.
The show was heard on ABC for over a decade, from 1945 to 1953, airing a total of 409 episodes. The main sponsor throughout the show’s run was the Equitable Life Assurance Society of USA, which is now called the AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company.Click here to read more about This Is Your Fbi
