This brief revival of the 1960s cop thriller continued the adventures of Amos Burke, a senior Los Angeles police officer and millionaire. By now, Burke was a widower with a son, Peter, who was a detective under his command. The revival continued many of the hallmarks of the old show: glamorous backgrounds, convoluted plots and big-name guest stars.Written by

I well remember the first incarnation of Burke's Law with Gene Barry as the rich
old money cop who came to crime scenes in his Rolls-Royce and after an hour
of time visiting the guest star lineup inevitably solved the crime. It was a great
show for two seasons and then someone had the bright idea to make Amos
Burke a secret agent. Show never made it after that.
Thirty years later Amos Burke is with the LAPD again and is now a senior consultant as befitting a senior citizen. He got married and widowed in the
interim and had a son. The son grew up to be Peter Barton and he's now a
homicide cop with the LAPD.
Now they both go to crime scenes in style. At least Gene Barry does. Barton
preferred more understated modes of transportation.
It was a nice show, but I guess it was too late to get this souffle to rise again.
