Junior Senator Hayes Stowe (Hal Holbrook) was a very idealistic politician. His goals were the betterment of society and the environment in which we live.
His affinity for getting involved with causes and issues of public concern did not endear him to the old-line professional politicians he had to deal with in Washington, and in trying to resolve problems he often stepped on the toes of entrenched business interests with impressive political connections.
With the help of Jordan Boyle, his administrative aide, and the support of his wife Erin (Sharon Acker) and his daughter Norma (Cindy Eilbacher), Hayes relentlessly fought for what he believed was right and just.
The Senator was one of the three rotating elements that comprised The Bold Ones during the 1970-1971 season (replacing the original Bold Ones series The Protectors).
The other two were The New Doctors and The Lawyers.
Although The Sentaor only lasted for eight episodes, it earned nine Emmy nominations in 1971, winning five, including Best Drama, Best Continued Performance by an Actor (Hal Holbrook), and three additional separate awards for Outstanding Achievement in writing, direction, and film editing.
