Trivia

ABC canceled the series after one season due to mediocre ratings. When Burt Reynolds became a popular success in the early 1970s, which included the Oscar-nominated film Deliverance (1972) and his appearance on a highly-publicized 1972 Cosmopolitan centerfold, CBS reran the series in 1973 and 1975 with great success.

Good while it lasted

Great short-lived series. Reynolds in another cop show after Hawk, but this time in color, with more cast members and under a Quinn Martin format (Prologue, Acts 1 to 4, Epilogue). Social topics of the day (student unrest, race relations, changing morals) were woven into the episodes and Burt with his stunts; what more can you ask for?
