A crime drama that ran on {{ABC}} from 1972-1977, produced by Quinn Martin Productions (with [[Creator/WarnerBros Warner Bros. Television]] in season one). It starred Karl Malden as Det. Lt. Mike Stone, a veteran cop, and Creator/MichaelDouglas (in his StarMakingRole) as Inspector Steve Keller, Stone's younger partner. The series was shot on-location in UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco. Douglas left the show at the start of its fifth and final season, and was replaced by Richard Hatch as Inspector Dan Robbins; this change was not popular with viewers (since ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'' hadn't been created yet), so the series was cancelled.
