Rosetti and Ryan

1 9 7 7 (USA)
7 x 60 minute episodes

Charming, cocky  Joe Rosetti (Tony Roberts), who could “make a jury dance on the end of a string”, and earnest, methodical ex-cop Frank Ryan (Squire Fridell), were the latest in a long line of unbeatable TV lawyers.

Whenever a Rosetti and Ryan case came to trial, assistant DA Jessica Hornesby (Jane Elliot) remained blissfully unaware that she was about to lose again – despite being beautiful but not dumb.

The series debuted on NBC on 22 September 1977 but only ran for seven episodes before it was cancelled.
