This classic 1960s television series features David Janssen as Dr. Richard Kimble, a man falsely convicted of murdering his wife. While he's being transported to death row, his train derails, setting him loose and granting him the opportunity to clear his name. As Kimble scours the country for his wife's murderer--the famed "one-armed man"--he must also keep one step ahead of the lawman, Lt. Gerard (Barry Morse), who is pursuing him. A groundbreaking series with an engaging storyline and excellent direction, THE FUGITIVE was such a pop-culture phenomenon that its finale was the highest-rated television episode of its time. The hunt is on in this first batch of episodes from the series' debut season.
