Steven J. Cannell himself portrays Dixon, which is very unusual for him as he did not appear in any of the other series he created. (Stephen J Cannell also played Tony Danza's former (and also dead) baseball coach in "Who's the Boss".) See more
He was a cop, and good at his job. But then he committed the ultimate sin and testified against other cops - gone bad. Cops who tried to kill him, but got the woman he loved instead. Framed for murder, now he prowls the badlands. An outlaw hunting outlaws, a bounty hunter - a RENEGADE!
