Lee Majors was no stranger to television when The Fall Guy premiered in 1981. In the 1960s he had starred in the western series The Big Valley. Following Valley, Lee starred in the last season of The Virginian (1970-71) and Owen Marshall, Counselor At Law (1971-74) before achieving superstardom in The Six Million Dollar Man (1974-78).

In The Fall Guy, he played movie stuntman Colt Seavers, who moonlighted as a bounty hunter, aided by his cousin and protégé Howie Munson (Douglas Barr) and the sexy stuntwoman Jody Banks, played by the sexy actress Heather Thomas.

Colt and crew received their bounty assignments from a series of bail-bondswomen: the first was Samantha “Big” Jack (Jo Ann Pflug), later to be followed by Terri Michaels (Markie Post) and finally Pearl Sperling (Nedra Volz) in the show’s final season.

Each week’s episode began with Colt performing a death-defying stunt on a movie set, followed by a visit to the bail-bondswoman for an "easy" assignment., but it never quite worked out that way for poor Colt. Inevitably, the quest for an easy bounty would lead Colt and his team into a predicament that required him to put his stuntman skills to use.

The Fall Guy never disappointed in the ‘colorful villain’ arena, pitting Colt and his team against a diverse group of foes that included everything from rampaging bikers to evil UFO’s, along with the familiar thieves and smugglers.

Even more colorful than these villains was the guest star who made an appearance in each episode, including such famous faces as Milton Berle, Buddy Hackett, Robert Wagner, Cyd Charisse, Elvira and Richard Burton. There was also an occasional music-themed episode that would include acts like Sha Na Na or The Temptations. In the third season premiere episode "Devil's Island" Lee was paired with his former Bionic co-star Lindsay Wagner.

Entire episodes were built around the guest list (‘Losers Weepers’ featured a platoon of TV comedians and ‘Happy Trails’ showcased old TV cowboy stars).

The show was the brainchild of executive producer Glen A. Larson and enjoyed a five-season run that carried it into the spring of 1986.
