The Bold Ones: The Lawyers

Show Summary

The Bold Ones was a revolving series of shows that aired on NBC in the 1970s. The idea of the whole series came from a critically acclaimed made for TV movie The Sound Of Anger, which aired in 1968 and is included in this guide as a first pilot for the series, even though it was made as a one time, stand alone movie.
From this beginning, the idea for a series on the law firm featured in the movie was born and another pilot was shot entitled The Whole World Is Watching. While the series The Bold Ones was being developed, it was expanded to include other areas of interest, including medicine, law enforcement, and politics, all of which would rotate in the same time slot, a programming model taken from 1950s and 1960s television.
In The Bold Ones: The Lawyers, Burl Ives is a brilliant, flamboyant attorney. Joseph Campanella and James Farentino played the Darrell brothers, who are his young law partners. The law firm was located in Los Angeles.
Roy Huggins was executive producer. One episode of The Lawyers was titled "The Rockford Riddle", which points to Huggins' later series The Rockford Files.moreless
