The Rookies

  • 1972-1976

  • USA (English)

  • Starring: Sam Melville, Michael Ontkean, Georg Standford Brown, Gerald O'Loughlin

Lieutenant Ed Ryker (Gerald O’Loughlin) greets a new group of police trainees recruited from college campuses and the armed forces in the hope that they can be a means of communication with minorities and other sectors of the public.  Though in charge of their training, Ryker is not overly enthusiastic about the program.  The trainees include Webster (Georg Stanford Brown), an African-American who seeks to right society’s wrongs, Danko (Sam Melville), a former Air Force officer trying to save his marriage with Jill (Kate Jackson), and Gillis (Michael Ontkean), a naïve, happy-go-lucky college graduate.  This intensely human series, co-produced by Aaron Spelling, is sensitive, compassionate, sometimes humorous and always filled with action, suspense and excitement.
