Crime is on the rise in the City of Angels, with more gangs, drugs, riots and brutality pushing Officers Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) and Jim Reed (Kent McCord) to the edge. Stoned hippies, escaped convicts and ruthless snipers litter the streets - it's no surprise that this season features the newly formed LAPD S.W.A.T. team helping to clean up the mess. Experience the action "ride-along" style as two of L.A.'s finest put their lives on the line in the name of service and protection.
A spin-off of the popular NBC-TV series Dragnet, which was created and produced by that show's Jack Webb, Adam-12 chronicled in striking detail and accuracy events from real LAPD cases. The show presented actual department-issue badges, vehicles and Los Angeles patrol stations, and its compelling realism gave the program a seven-season run on NBC from 1968-1975.
