‘The Silent Force’ was a strike force of government agents based in Southern California who were assigned to fight organised crime.
The agents – Ward Fuller (Ed Nelson), Jason Hart (Percy Rodriguez) and Amelia Cole (Lynda Day) – worked undercover to infiltrate the mob and expose its operations which preyed on innocent citizens.
They frequently became involved with companies or individuals who were being pressured by the syndicate, and in the first telecast, they exposed a candidate for governor who was actually a member of the syndicate.
The ABC crime drama series from Aaron Spelling Productions aired between 21 September 1970 and 11 January 1971.
