Hong Kong is a 26-episode adventure/drama series which aired on ABC television during the 1960-1961 season and helped to catapult Australian actor Rod Taylor into a major film star, primarily in the 1960s, beginning with his role in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds. The series was a production of 20th Century Fox Television.
Hong Kong was set in the then British Crown Colony of Hong Kong. Taylor portrayed Glenn Evans, an American journalist who worked in the exotic Far Eastern city. His search for stories led him into encounters with smugglers, murderers, drug peddlers, and mysterious women who disappear behind beaded curtains. Taylor’s principal costar was Lloyd Bochner, who portrayed Chief Inspector Neil Campbell.
