The Untouchables is a crime drama that aired on ABC.

Dramatized versions of the case files of real-life Prohibition-era federal agent Eliot Ness are spotlighted, as Ness and his team of incorruptible agents, known as the Untouchables, battle various organized crime figures (including among them, Al Capone, Frank Nitti, Ma Barker and Dutch Schultz) during the early 1930s.
