Brought to the screen by five-time Emmy´┐Ż nominee and "Dragnet" creator Jack Webb, Emergency!

One of the first series to show what goes on in the daily lives of fire department and hospital employees, Emergency!

Adam-12
The first realistic portrayal of the life of an L.A. beat cop in the 1960s and 1970s, Adam-12 starred Martin Milner and Kent McCord as intrepid Officers Pete Malloy and Jim Reed. Guest stars include Karen Black (Nashville, The Great Gatsby), Barry Williams ("The Brady Bunch") and Harry Dean Stanton (The Green Mile; Paris, Texas).

SYNOPSES

Race to the scene alongside the heroic men of paramedic Squad 51 and the emergency staff of Rampart Hospital as they respond round-the-clock to L.A.'s most dire emergencies: from women in labor to an out-of-control epidemic. Kevin Tighe and Randolph Mantooth lead an acclaimed cast as two hard-working paramedics trying to deal with the daily crises of their job with wit, humor and bravery. Including the thrilling TV movie "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act," it's the gripping series that blazed the trail for all action series to come!

Adam-12: Season One
