Agent Man is a spy-fi
television series that aired on UPN in 2000.
The series, created by writer
Richard Regen, starred Costas Mandylor as Monk, a gallivanting
secret agent, who was one of a team of agents that included
Holliday, played by Dina Meyer (Starship Troopers) and Davis,
played by Dondre Whitfield. The team reported to Brubeck, played
by Paul Guilfoyle (CSI). The frequent guest villain is the former
agent Prima, played by Musetta Vander.
All the lead characters share the
last names of jazz musicians Thelonious Monk, Billie Holiday,
Miles Davis, and Dave Brubeck.

"Secret Agent Man", performed by Supreme Beings of Leisure,
for its theme song. Because the original version of this song was also
used as the theme song for American broadcasts of another television
series, the 1960s British TV series, Danger Man (primarily

mistaken impressions that this series was somehow a spin off or remake
of the earlier program, but other than the theme song, no connections
were made evident.

West), the pair also acted as Executive Producers for the series.
While not a spin-off or even an update of the 60's spy classic Secret
Agent, this new series did share the same theme song,
"Secret Agent Man". The song was written by the team of
