  • The cases of an easy going ex-convict turned private investigator.

  • Series about an ex-convict-turned-private-investigator named Jim Rockford who would rather run away than fight and would rather go fishing than work. He isn't a coward, and he isn't lazy -- just rather on the cautious side, that's all. And he bears a very strong resemblance to Western television hero Bret Maverick. Rockford is sometimes assisted (and sometimes deterred) in his cases by friends Dennis Becker (a police detective), Evelyn "Angel" Martin (his cowardly former cellmate) and pretty Beth Davenport (his lawyer).

  • Jim Rockford is an easygoing private investigator is this television series. He was formerly convicted (and later pardoned) for an armed robbery he didn't commit. He lives in an exterior battered (and very well appointed on the interior) mobile home on the Malibu beach. The cases he takes usually turn out to be more difficult and dangerous than he initially imagines, and he often ends up in situations over his head. Occasionally, his father Joseph (aka Rocky), a retired truck driver, shows up to help him.

  • Jim Rockford, an ex-convict pardoned for an armed robbery he didn't commit, is a private investigator specializing in closed cases. His office is his oversized trailer next to the Malibu pier. His pricey fee of $200 a day plus expenses makes it hard for him to attract clients, but he is well worth it. He is sometimes assisted by his father Joseph (aka Rocky), his best friend Sgt. Dennis Becker of the LAPD, his lawyer/girlfriend Beth Davenport, and his former cellmate Evelyn "Angel" Martin.
