An anthology comedy series featuring a line up of different celebrity guest stars appearing in anywhere from one, two, three, and four short stories or vignettes within an hour about versions of love and romance.
A realistic police drama following the lives of two officers of the LAPD, veteran Pete Malloy and his rookie partner, Jim Reed. Done in a spare, almost "docudrama" style, each episode covered a variety of incidents that the officers encountered during a shift, from the tragic to the trivial. Written by

The dispatcher's voice on the program was that of Shaaron Claridge. Claridge was a real L.A. dispatcher. Producer Jack Webb thought that using a real dispatcher for the voice-overs would lend authenticity to the program. He did the same thing for his later series, Emergency! (1972), casting a real-life emergency dispatcher to voice the role. See more »
At the opening of every episode, the radio announcer makes a call to Adam-12 and reports some crime in progress. Adam-12 then speeds to the scene - without the benefit of the address. See more »
This is one show that still holds up over thirty years after it premiered. Not only do you get a true life look at the day to day operations of a typical patrolman, but you also see the evolution of the relationship between two officers. When Reed is first teamed with Malloy he is the subordinate young officer who keeps calling Malloy sir and makes a few mistakes along the way, but by the end of the series, Malloy treats Reed as an equal and the two even call each other by their first names. In fact, in either the first or second season, Reed names Malloy the Godfather to his son. This show definitely proves that Jack Webb was a genius.
