Having served a five -year imprisonment sentence for an offense he has not committed, Jim Rockford decides to become a private detective in order to prevent what he has experienced does not happen to others. Installed in Malibu, he set his fees at $ 200 per week plus costs.

200 dollars plus the costs (The Rockford Files) was an American television series which was broadcast between 1974 and 1980. The series featured James Garner in the role of Jim Rockford, a private and disillusioned private detective who lived in a caravan Malibu, California. Although Rockford has often been involved in dangerous and difficult situations as a private detective, he was also known for his skill in resolving complex puzzles and navigating in the complex world of criminal cases.

The series was renowned for its use of humor and intelligent dialogues, as well as for its realistic representation of the harsh realities of life as a private detective. Rockford was often confronted with tough and ruthless adversaries, but he was also surrounded by a group of faithful friends who helped him to face his challenges. Among these friends were his father, Rocky, a former prisoner, and his detective friends, Dennis Becker and Angel Martin.

During his six seasons on television, 200 dollars plus costs won numerous prizes, including two Primetime Emmy Awards for James Garner as a main actor in a dramatic television series. The series has also been nominated for many other prices, including several Emmy Awards and Golden Globe Awards. Despite its success at the time, the series has since been largely forgotten and is often considered a cult series. However, she continues to have a small group of devoted fans who appreciate her intelligent humor and her complex characters.

It should also be noted that during the last two seasons of the series, an actor took on the role of a private detective, very close to the one who was going to bring him glory shortly after: Tom Selleck, future Magnum, here in the Role of Lance White.
