The Jericho team were a trio of Allied specialists who operated as intelligence agents and saboteurs behind Nazi lines. Franklin Sheppard, of American Army Intelligence, was their commanding officer and chief planner. Jean-Gaston Andre, of the Free French Air Force, was the team's demolitions and weapons expert. Nicholas Gage, of the British Navy, was a former circus performer (high-wire artist) whose specialty was getting in and out of Nazi installations. Written by

I have fond but hazy memories of this short lived (didn't last a full season) WWII theme program from the Fall of 1966. The premise was based very loosely on the Jedburghs, 3 man teams consisting of a Frenchman, an English or American officer, and a radio operator. Their mission was to train the often disorganized French resistance and coordinate their activities with the Allied forces, the Jedburghs actually went into action on the eve of D-Day and for some time afterwards. "Jericho" is set in some unspecified time before the D-Day landings. The show was played straight with just enough humor to relieve the tension, and reflected the changed attitudes of 20 years later, there was a distinction made between Nazis and Germans and I vaguely recall stories showing the tensions between the German military and the SS and Police organizations. Also it showed some of the nuances of French attitudes, how many French adopted a "wait and see" attitude and were not all 100% pro DeGaulle. I also recall an interview in TV Guide with Dom Francks (Franklin Shepperd) in which he wore an orange suit because "I like it.? Curious to know if any tapes exist, in that pre cable era failed prime time programs didn't have a second chance in syndication or on cable, hence the studios had no incentive to preserve them.
