A very routine remake of the
famous series; nothing much had changed except for the faces
and the police cars (which were newer). Gus and Matt were the uniformed L.A.P.D. cops on
patrol this time, in a squad car code-named "Adam 12" - hence the
title of the series. As before, episodes contained a mixture of serious crimes and trivial or amusing incidents on the streets of
L.A. augmented by running byplay between married Gus and
single Matt about their off-duty lives. Sgt. Santos was the watch commander.
Produced during 1989-1990, this
series aired only in New York and Los Angeles at that time, going
into national syndication the following season.
