Burt Reynolds had established himself as an international movie star before appearing as retired cop B.L. Stryker in this short-lived ABC show. The show follows Stryker as he goes into retirement in Palm Beach, Florida. Fresh from patrolling the crime-strewn streets of New Orleans, Stryker soon gets the itch to return to his former life, and takes up a career as a private detective. The show follows him as he unravels numerous mysteries, usually in association with his close friend and work buddy, Oz (Ossie Davis). All 12 episodes from the series are included on this release.
