What Might've Been: Joe Forrester (1975)

Joe Forrester was the second spin-off from Police Story in as many seasons (Police Woman being the other) when it launched in September 1975, four months after the pilot aired on Police Story in a 90-minute episode.

Five years after San Francisco International Airport had failed as part of Four-in-One, Lloyd Bridges was back, making his final attempt at replicating the success he'd had with Sea Hunt years earlier. As shown on Police Story, Joe Forrester (Bridges) moves back to foot patrol to attend to a series of violent crimes in a Los Angeles neighborhood. Patricia Crowley (ex-Please Don't Eat The Daisies) provided a romantic interest for Bridges, but isn't included in the intro video appearing below.

Unfortunately, Joe Forrester aired on Tuesdays, opposite Happy Days on ABC, as memory serves. Ballgame over.

Here's the intro:
