When eccentric millionaire Rachel Bruner arrives at the doorstep of detective Nero Wolfe's brownstone, she brings an extraordinary offer, a disturbing story of harassment, and an FBI tail. Only after Wolfe takes the case does the murder come to light.
The premiere episode of A&E's original series based on Rex Stout's beloved Nero Wolfe novels, THE DOORBELL RANG sees the epicurean detective (Maury Chaykin) and his dogged assistant Archie Goodwin (Oscar® winner Timothy Hutton, who also directed) taking on J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. As the story unfolds, however, it becomes clear that the Agency is not guilty of murder--in this case, anyway--and their reluctant cooperation is essential to capturing a killer.
Sophisticated and suspenseful, THE DOORBELL RANG captures the wit and style that have made Wolfe one of fiction's most famous detectives.
