Wilentz, August frequently comes into contact with people he has known for many years. George Untermeyer is the Santa Luisa Chief of Police, Sgt. Rivera another detective, and Katy is the police dispatcher in this Quinn Martin production. Written by

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.

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?
