Stoned hippies, escaped convicts and ruthless snipers litter the streets – it’s no surprise that the Season Two of Adam-12 features the newly formed LAPD S.W.A.T. team helping to clean up the mess. Experience the action "ride-along" style as two of L.A.’s finest cops put their lives on the line in the name of service and protection. Season Two of Adam-12 features guest stars Bruce Kirby (The Sopranos), Fran Ryan (General Hospital), Ronne Troup (Knots Landing), Jed Allen (Port Charles), and Margarita Cordova (Santa Barbara).
A spin-off of the popular NBC series Dragnet, and created and produced by Jack Webb, Adam-12 is one of the first realistic portrayals on the lives of LAPD and chronicles in striking detail and accuracy of events from real cases. Brimming with gritty realism and actions, Adam-12 was a must-see staple of television when the series aired on NBC from 1968 – 1975.
