Product Description

The Defenders TV show was a 60 minute legal action series about recent law school graduate who teems up with his father (also a Lawyer) to tackle cases that were highly sensitive in the 1960's such as abortion and anti-american cases. It was perhaps the most socially-conscious series the medium had ever seen. The series boasted a direct lineage to the age of live television drama, but also possessed a concern for topical issues and a penchant for social comment that were singularly resonant with New Frontier liberalism. With its contemporary premise and its serious tone, The Defenders established the model for a spate of social-issue programs that followed in the early sixties, marking a trend toward dramatic shows centered on non-violent, professional "heroes" (doctors, lawyers, teachers, politicians).
