"Honey West" is an American crime drama television series produced by the ABC network. The series ran for 30 episodes during the 1965-1966 television season and starred Anne Francis as female private detective Honey West.


The Honey West character was created by Gloria and Forest Fickling under the pseudonym "G.G. Fickling" in the late 1950s. West was one of the first female "private eyes" to ever appear on television.

Francis first played West in an episode of "Burke's Law", which led to this series being commissioned as a spin-off. Created as an American answer to the popular Emma Peel and Cathy Gale characters in the British series "The Avengers", "Honey West" was not a ratings success and was canceled after one season. Francis nonetheless received a Golden Globe Award for her performance.

Decades later, Francis reprised the role of Honey West (though her last name is changed to "Best") in an episode of the 1994 revival of "Burke's Law".

In the series, West had a partner, Sam, and a pet ocelot. For sneaking around at night, she wore a black fabric bodystocking, while for displaying herself as alluring or intimidating she wore a leopard coat. Her car was an AC Cobra.
