Gritty and realistic, this is one of television's finest police dramas which aired from 1958 to 1963 on the ABC television network. Filmed on the streets of New York City, this ever-popular series puts a human face on crime, going beyond a simplistic portrayal of good vs. evil to delve into the complex personal dramas of the people involved. Filled with swift-moving action the stories are often violent and tragic but also contain their share of humor, absurdity and even fairy tale romance. Starring Paul Burke and Horace McMalion, this landmark collection features many top film and television actors for guest-starring roles.
