Dragnet

Show Summary

TV Rating:
Canada: G
USA: TV-G

Dragnet 1967 through Dragnet 1970 is the second of the Dragnet series to grace our television. Beginning in January 1967 and running till September 1970, the series stared Jack Webb as the lead character Detective Sargent Joe Friday. He also directed and produced the series.

This series focuses on two detectives, Sargent Joe Friday and Officer Bill Gannon, played by Harry Morgan. Throughout this series, these two brave men of the LAPD, track down criminals in the city of Las Angeles, California, while also helping its citizens recover their possessions and sometimes their very souls.

The original "Dragnet" (Dragnet 1951) is the grandfather of ALL of today's police drama shows. Dragnet 1967 through 1970 is the first canceled network TV series to successfully come back to life on a broadcast network.

In late 1965, Universal and NBC hired Webb to revive "Dragnet" as a made-for-TV movie. Filmed in early 1966, this TV movie didn't air until January 1969. Titled "World Premiere: Dragnet," this well-made film has Friday and Gannon linking the slaying of photographer's models to the disappearance of a war widow, while Gannon prepares to retire.
