Created by ex-cop-turned-author Joseph Wambaugh The Onion Field, Police Story is an anthology series detailing the lives of LAPD officers in a collection of realistic and gritty accounts of what it meant to be a cop in 1970s Los Angeles. The series became the archetype for many critically acclaimed shows that followed, including Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue and Homicide: Life On The Street. The series distinguished itself from its predecessors by a multidimensional portrayal of its protagonist: these cops were flawed, not cartoonlike heroes. From week to week, gripping episodes addressed difficult issues such as police corruption and the stresses and hell that can come with leading a cop’s life.
With no regular cast, the show featured different stars each week, as well as a rotating acting ensemble including James Farentino Jesus Of Nazareth, Tony Lo Bianco The French Connection, Don Meredith NFL Monday Night Football, Laraine Stephens Matt Helm and Vic Morrow Combat! . Season One stars included Ed Asner, Lloyd Bridges, Angie Dickinson, Dean Stockwell and Kurt Russell. All 21 Original Episodes from 1973 74
