Sam McCloud is a rustic country sheriff from a rural part of the United States. He travels to the big city and joins the police force, using his country ways and laid-back approach to nab the bad guys.
Three Texas teens hope to make a break for it and escape their dead-end existence in a cotton-mill town but get sucked into the seedy underbelly of organized crime when one of them steals from the wrong man.
Aw man, I'm so sad it was canceled - I remember it being well done and challenging and just plain entertaining. It WOULD be so wonderful if it were on DVD...I miss it, and that's several years later. Frank Langella and Naveen Andrews made this show more weighty and exotic and, yes, sexy! And Peter Reigert...just a fabulous talent I've loved since Local Hero. Darnit, the stupid fate of so many really worthy shows...it happens far too often, doesn't it? Truly, I have no idea what the heck a decent show's gotta do to get a chance these days!
By far, I most remember the last two episodes, a two-part "series" set in a fictional pseudo-Middle Eastern country, I believe.
