Performers, Cast and Crew:
Cops and hippies never got along--that was, until the MOD SQUAD arrived on the scene. Debuting in 1968, the hit series offered a countercultural spin on the conventional police drama. Able to go places normal cops couldn't, the Mod Squad included a diverse group of troubled young adults: rich-kid-turned-car-thief Peter (Michael Cole), Watts rioter Linc (Clarence Williams III), and free-spirited runaway Julie (Peggy Lipton). Together, they formed a tenuous alliance with the fuzz, going undercover to nab lowlifes who preyed on the young while also grappling with the moral dilemmas presented by selling out to "the man." Though the premise may have seemed far-fetched, the series was actually based on the experiences of series creator Bud Ruskin, who worked in an L.A. narcotics squad. This collection presents the first volume of the landmark series' second season.
Meet Pete, Linc and Julie: The Mod Squad. This trio consisted of rich, long-haired Pete Cochran, Lincoln "Linc" Hayes from the tough streets of inner city Los Angeles, and beautiful flower child Julie Barnes, a runaway from San Francisco. They're recruited by police captain Adam Greer (Tiger Andrews) for a covert unit that will help bridge the generation gap. Each week these three cops with love beads wrestled with criminals " and their own consciences. They may have been the "fuzz," but they were determined to never compromise their values. They were The Mod Squad!
