Trivia

The last three days of each week Burt Reynolds worked round the clock on this show. He would be up all night with one crew, then do another twelve hours with a second crew. He never billed the studio for the overtime, as he believed the studio would not have been able to afford the show if he had. See more »

Fine drama
14 August 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Between this and Quinn Martin's Dan August, Burt's potential as a dramatic action star seemed sealed. He was good in this moody, jazzy and sometimes violent series. There was always that emphasis on his (American) Indian heritage and the wretchedness of his job (one episode dealt with the unrewarding job of a stool pigeon). Too bad Burt didn't seem to care much about his movie career considering the spate of bad films he made in the 70's (Deliverance notwithstanding).
