Wojeck

Show Summary

Welcome to the Wojeck guide at TV.com. Wojeck premiered as an episode of Bob Hope Presents The Chrysler Theatre in the episode Tell Them The Streets are Dancing. Based on the exploits of real-life Toronto coronor Dr. Morton Shulman, Dr. Steve Wojeck was a medical examiner and tireless crusader against drug abuse, elderly abuse, police abuse, auto safety, Indian abuse, industrial abuse, etc. In short, a Canadian version of Quincy, M.E. that predated that show by a decade. One of the CBC's first dramas, the series was widely acclaimed for its direct and sometimes harsh exploration of contemporary social issues. Wojeck himself was a stalwart, quiet man driven to outrage over the injustice he confronted. He was supported by his wife Marty and his children Steve and Judy, and they dealt with many normal family issues of the day. After two seasons the show was cancelled due to a combination of factors: the writers and producers ran out of ideas, they were unable to find a U.S. buyer for the series, and Shulman himself withdrew his support since the show ran advertising for Chrysler. Later, the series was "completed" with a 1992 TV movie, Wojeck: Out of the Fire, which had Wojeck return to Toronto on a search for a baby killer and to reconcile with his now ex-wife Marty. Despite its early cancellation, the show's art, direction, and writing remain a tribute to the talent of the time.
