Mannix worked originally for Wickersham at Intertect and then struck out on his own, assisted by Peggy Fair (whose cop-husband had been killed) and police department contact Tobias.
The character of Lew Wickersham was modeled after Lew Wasserman, the head of MCA Corp.
Throughout the series, Mannix has numerous interactions with the Los Angeles Police Department. The cars represented, however, are not similar to those used by Los Angeles; for one thing, the emergency equipment is different: while sometimes the correct arrangement for the period is shown (two light units side by side with a siren speaker in between), usually the police cars have a rotary beacon on top with an electromechanical siren under the hood, which is incorrect.
