The Untouchables (1993) Information

The Untouchables is an American crime drama series that aired for two seasons in syndication, from January 1993 to May 1994. The series portrayed work of the real life Untouchables federal investigative squad in Prohibition-era Chicago and its efforts against Al Capone's attempts to profit from the market in bootleg liquor.

The series features Tom Amandes as Eliot Ness and William Forsythe as Al Capone, and was based on the 1959 series and 1987 film of the same name.


As in the 1987 film version, Ness is depicted as an agent of the US Treasury Department, though, in real life, at the time of the Capone investigation, the Bureau of Prohibition, Ness' employer, was part of the Department of Justice.

Not as successful as the original 1959 series starring Robert Stack, this series only lasted two seasons.
