This is the city: Los Angeles, CA. It is 1968, and Sgt Joe Friday (Jack Webb) and Det. Bill Gannon (Harry Morgan, M*A*S*H*) are hitting the streets once again in the name of law and order, to protect and to serve, just like patrolmen Officer Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) and his faithful rookie partner Officer Jim Reed (Kent McCord) did on ADAM-12.
The community landscape is littered daily by juvenile delinquency, drug abuse, student dissidence and con-artistry but, just like that, it can all be brought to a screeching halt when gumshoes(Friday and Gannon) appear on the scene. Ladies and gentlemen, the stories you are about to see are true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent. This is Dragnet 1968.
Originally conceived as a radio program and then a popular 1950s television series, the DRAGNET series from 1967-70 featured the visionary cop drama of creator Jack Webb in its prime: paving the way for the hit spin-off shows ADAM-12 and EMERGENCY! along with the fact that you can see these episodes complete & uncut without all those deleted scenes you'd get when DRAGNET was shown in reruns on ME-TV, Antenna TV, TV Land, and Nickelodeon.
