Police Story: Season One

( 1 )

Overview

The authenticity of the NBC anthology series Police Story (1973-77) was at least partially traceable to its source: Joseph Wambaugh, an ex-LAPD Detective Sergeant who left the force to become a bestselling crime author.

Overview

The authenticity of the NBC anthology series Police Story (1973-77) was at least partially traceable to its source: Joseph Wambaugh, an ex-LAPD Detective Sergeant who left the force to become a bestselling crime author. Yet realism permeated other details as well, on a remarkable level - such as the fact that the stories themselves were culled from actual police case files, and the fact that the celebrity actors (many of them lesser-known character players) were frequently chosen for their resemblance to the actual participants. Narratives straddled both rural areas and big city operations. The feature-length pilot, Slow Boy, originally ran on March 20, 1973 and was rebroadcast September 25, 1973; the 21 regular Season One episodes ran October 2, 1973 through March 26, 1974. This box set contains all 22 of the said installments.

    Realistic and quality police drama

    I first watched this show when A&E ran it on their cable network back in the 1990s. This series ran from 1973-1978 and is one of my favorite police dramas due to the realistic plots, great production values and solid acting from many character and leading actors of the time. This show was created by Joseph Wambaugh, ex-LAPD officer, who is also an author. I highly recommend this DVD.
