Produced by Jack Webb, whose realistic portrayal of police work had scored a major hit in Dragnet, Adam 12 dealt with the day-to-day working world of two uniformed policemen assigned to patrol-car duty. Officer Pete Malloy was a senior officer who at the start of the series was teamed with a probationary rookie cop, Jim Reed. As members of the Los Angeles Police Department, they encountered a wide range of cases in each episode, some serious, some trivial, some amusing, and some tragic. Running as it did for seven seasons, Adam 12 saw changes in the status of the officers as the years passed. During the 1970-1971 season, Jim Reed was promoted from rookie officer, and in the following year, Officer Malloy was upped to Policeman 3, one notch below the rank of sergeant.
