A remake of the popular and long-running 70's poilce drama of the same name. Officers Doyle and Grant patrolled the streets of Los Angeles in squad car Adam-12, trying to keep the city safe for everyone. The show mainly focused on the partners' dealings with both serious crimes and more unusual humorous situations, as well as looking at their home and personal lives. Written by

I agree with the previous comment regarding the low quality of the show. Arthur L. Annecharico (the executive producer) did a number of series for Universal TV like the first-run syndicated episodes of Airwolf along with the revivals of The Munsters and Dragnet. When watching these productions, it is clearly evident that they were shot on a VERY limited budget. Since the syndication market was starting to dry up for these types of shows (anything that wasn't a sitcom) by the late 80's, it was a wise decision since they didn't take a financial bath when the returns were less than stellar. I remember Annecharico having trouble with the unions for some of his labor practices in L.A. (the revamped Airwolf was shot in Canada).
