Police Story 
is an anthology television crime drama that aired from 1973 
through 1978. The show was the brainchild of author and former 
policeman Joseph Wambaugh and represented a major step forward in 
the realistic depiction of police work and violence on network TV. 
Although it was an anthology, there were certain things that all 
episodes had in common; for instance, the main character in each 
episode was a police officer. The setting was always Los Angeles 
and the characters always worked for some branch of the LAPD. Also, 
notwithstanding the anthology format, there were recurring 
characters. Scott Brady appeared in more than a dozen episodes as 
"Vinnie," a former cop who, upon retirement, had opened a bar 
catering to police officers, and who acted as a sort of Greek 
chorus during the run of the series, commenting on the characters 
and plots. Tony Lo Bianco and Don Meredith made several appearances 
as Robbery-Homicide Division partners Tony Calabrese and Bert 
Jameson. Other recurring characters included surveillance 
specialist Joe LaFrieda, played by Vic Morrow, and vice officer 
turned homicide detective Charlie Czonka, played by James 
Farentino. 
The anthology format made the show an excellent venue to try out 
characters and settings for series development, and, during its 
broadcast run, 
Police Story generated three spin-offs. A first-season 
episode, "The Gamble," starring Angie Dickinson, became the pilot 
for the successful 
Police Woman series, which ran from 1974-1978. "The Return 
of Joe Forrester," a second-season episode starring Lloyd Bridges, 
was developed into the weekly series 
Joe Forrester. "A Chance to Live," an episode from the 
fifth season, with David Cassidy, became 
Man Undercover.
