It starred Jessica Walter as the widowed 30-something Amy Prentiss who suddenly finds herself promoted to Chief of Detectives with the San Francisco Police Department when her boss dies.
There had never been a female Chief of Detectives in the SFPD before, and for her colleagues that took a bit of getting used to. Fighting prejudice, this was one lady cop who was determined to make the grade.
Also featured Helen Hunt (who would later rise to fame in Mad About You) in an early role as Amy’s 11-year-old daughter, Jill.
