EP_JONES! too_Police Woman_December 2019
If you need someone to get to the bottom of a crime, there is only one name: Pepper, the departments most successful undercover cop, in the hit series POLICE WOMAN.
This ground-breaking series – at the time, the first truly successful primetime series with a female lead – stars Angie Dickinson as Suzanne “Pepper” Anderson, an undercover cop who goes where few of her colleagues dare. With the help of her partner, Pepper goes undercover as a member of a pornography ring, a flight attendant, a lesbian inmate, a high school gym teacher – whatever it takes to bring criminals to justice and get the bad guys behind bars.
A ratings hit in the 1970s, when even then-President Gerald Ford moved a press conference so as not to miss an episode, POLICE WOMAN is often credited with inspiring a generation of female police officers. See the inspiration yourself, this month on JONES! too.
POLICE WOMAN was created by Robert L Collins (Police Story), and stars Angie Dickinson (Rio Bravo), Earl Holliman (The Rainmaker, The Thorn Birds), Charles Dierkop (Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid) and Ed Bernard (Blue Thunder).
