perspective on both personal and professional situations.

Loretta Swit and Tyne Daly are police detectives investigating a murder in this pilot TV Movie for the series.
Loretta Swit plays Cagney and Ronald Hunter plays Harvey. Very strange to see someone other than John Karlen.
As the show begins, our heroines are mere cops in uniform. They make a great bust and get promoted to detective.
Their first assignment is vice work as undercover prostitutes. However, Chris is very gungho and starts investigation
the murder of a diamond merchant.
The look and feel of this show is different, and Samuels is not the boss, but a senior detective.
The movie was a tremendous ratings smash.
