Season 1

A murder shockingly like his wife's leads Kolchak to Los Angeles, where he has signed on as a reporter with the L.A. Beacon newspaper. The crime: A pregnant woman is attacked and murdered. Her husband is accused in her death, but Kolchak senses there's more to the story. Kolchak's colleague, senior crime reporter Perri Reed is just as eager to get to the bottom of things, but she's skeptical of his wild theories.
