Synopsis

The success of "Cagney and Lacey" as a series resulted in a number of similarly-plotted lady cop carbons like this variation -- two Bakersfield, California, housewives volunteer to help the police by working with crime victims. This pilot, inspired by the actual Victim Witness Program of Tucson, has Yvette Mimieux and Diana Canova cruising in a retired, unmarked police car at night to help potential kidnap victim Patricia McCormack (the former Patty McCormack of "The Bad Seed"), rape victim Patricia Davis (daughter of Ronald and Nancy Reagan), and needy senior citizen Peter Brocco.
