Ben Vereen and Jeff Goldblum star in Tenspeed and Brown Shoe

Tenspeed and Brown Shoe

Two private detectives with their own detective agency in Los Angeles. E. L. (“Early Leroy”) “Tenspeed” Turner (Ben Vereen) is a hustler who worked as a private detective to satisfy his parole requirements. His partner Lionel “Brownshoe” Whitney (Jeff Goldblum) is an archetypal accountant, complete with button-down collars and a nagging fiancee, who had always wanted to be a 1940s-style Bogart private investigator.
