J. Hooker was
a cop drama that ran from 1982 to 1986 on ABC (CBS for
the last season). In this series, Captain Kirk (William
Shatner) starred as T. J. Hooker, and the beautiful
Heather Locklear starred as Officer Stacy Sheridan.
Other regular characters include Officer Vince Romano
(Adrian Zmed) and Officer Jim Corrigan (James Darren).
At the time of this writing, it was rumored that a full
feature film remake was in the works.
In this series, seasoned
detective Sergeant Thomas Jefferson (T.J.) Hooker’s
partner is killed in the line of duty. A livid Hooker
then vows to return to duty as a uniformed beat officer
in order to rid the streets of the kind of criminal
filth that killed his partner. As the series
progressed, Hooker and Romano teamed up as Unit
4-Adam-30, and Stacy and Jim teamed up as Unit
4-Adam-16. Together, the two teams would often partner
up to solve the crime and save the day.
