Jim Rockford was a private detective with one tiny difference - he was an ex-con. He was imprisoned for a crime he did not commit and was eventually exonerated when new evidence turned up.
He took cases that were closed - those the police were sure had been resolved. He had a real knack for turning up information that might reverse the already established guilty verdict and this did not endear him to the local police, particularly to Det. Dennis Becker with whom he had a love-hate relationship with.
