From the hills of West Virginia, Amos McCoy moves his family to an inherited farm in California. Grandpa Amos is quick to give advice to his three grandchildren and wonders how his neighbors ever managed without him around.
During the U.S. 1968-69 television season, Judd for the Defense, which aired on ABC Friday nights at 10:00pm Eastern/Pacific, was scheduled against Star Trek (1966) on NBC. The theme songs for both shows were composed by Alexander Courage. In addition, both shows were canceled after that season. See more »
I have not seen the series but from the above accolades and early demise, I am left wondering how would "Judd for the Defense" have done, if the series were part of a "wheel" series scheme, such as "The Name Of The Game" or "NBC Mystery Movie"?
The controversial subject covered and the story line seem to have reached many who have reviewed the series. I am rather surprised it has not yet gotten into the retro-broadcast schedule of operators such as Me-TV and Retro Television Network.
So it begs the question..."What If?" It seems to me a "wheel" series scheme would have spelled success for this series, adding to the variety of such programming. Who knows, perhaps the broadcasters would revive a modern version. Percy Foreman died in the 1980s, and I doubt F. L. Bailey sued the original producers.
