About Dragnet

Dragnet 1967-1970 was the second run of the Dragnet series. It began in January of 1967, and ran to September of 1970. The lead character, Sgt. Joe Friday, was played by Jack Webb, who also directed and produced the series. The show’s focus is on two detectives, Sgt. Joe Friday, and Officer Bill Gannon, played by Harry Morgan. The two track down criminals all throughout the city of Los Angeles, California. The original “Dragnet” was the grandfather of ALL of today’s police drama shows. This was the first time a cancelled network TV series was successfully revived. In late 1965, Universal and NBC hired Webb to revive “Dragnet” as a made-for-TV movie. This was filmed in early 1966, but didn’t air until January 1969. Titled “World Premiere: Dragnet,” the well-made film has Friday and Gannon linking the slayings of photographer’s models to the disappearance of a war widow, while Gannon prepares to retire.
