Officer Dan Shay was a married policeman in his twenties with the Los Angeles Police Department. Since he looked much younger than his age, he was very useful in undercover situations. He often posed as a student or a naive young man on the wrong side of the law. Keeping his head together at home was his cute wife Joanne and young daughter Cindy, while Sgt. Abrams was his firm police superior. Written by

Young vice cop goes undercover and has to deal with a pregnant wife ("real life") while playing somebody else at work.
I'm not sure what show the other person saw. What I saw, particularly in the pilot episode of Man Undercover was some really good twists and gritty writing for that era. I LOVED that show. It was one of the best "cop" shows I've ever seen and was one of the first to have this connection between his (main character's) personal life and the strange undercover life he was leading. Nice contrast. It made me want to work in television (and I do). Cassidy was/is an excellent performer. I can understand his reluctance after the Partridge craziness. Somebody come up with a show he can do and would say yes to! Please don't let it be another CSI.
