I watched The New Breed when I was a kid and loved it ever since. That was the first time I'd seen Leslie Nielson on T.V. I seem to recall that the series was televised for two or three years. So far, I haven't seen any re-runs on any of the cable channels. A number of good stars appeared on the show, like Ed Begley, Victor Jory and John Beradino. I don't know why the series went off the air as quickly as it did, particularly when I see so many of these minor-league T.V. shows stay on the air, year after year. Leslie Nielson was a real straight-laced and serious actor in the early 60's, unlike the comedy roles he plays in now. But I've always respected him as an actor and he certainly has the experience to do either serious roles or comedy ones. It's definitely time to get The New Breed out on DVD!
