Series: The Streets of San Francisco

A crime drama that ran on ABC from 1972-1977, produced by Quinn Martin Productions (with Warner Bros. Television in season one). It starred Karl Malden as Det. Lt. Mike Stone, a veteran cop, and Michael Douglas (in his Star-Making Role) as Inspector Steve Keller, Stone's younger partner. The series was shot on-location in San Francisco. Douglas left the show in its fifth and final season, and was replaced by Richard Hatch as Inspector Dan Robbins; this change was not popular with viewers (since Battlestar Galactica hadn't been created yet), so the series was cancelled.

Unique among crime shows since, the show's actors and writers took great pains to ensure an authentic portrayal of the San Francisco Police Department.
