HIGHWAY PATROL - THE COMPLETE SERIES (1955-59) Broderick Crawford
Highway Patrol is a 156-episode action crime drama series produced for syndication from 1955 to 1959. It was created by Ziv in response to the California Highway Patrol wanting to be featured in a TV series. However, because Ziv thought that the show needed to have a broader police scope than the real CHP, the generic show name was adopted.
The series starred Broderick Crawford as Dan Mathews, the gruff and dedicated head of a police force in an unidentified Western state.
Highway Patrol would feature many actors who would later become successful stars in their own right: Stuart Whitman, Clint Eastwood, Robert Conrad, Larry Hagman, Barbara Eden, Paul Burke, Peter Breck, Jeanne Cooper, Guy Williams, Ruta Lee, Robert Fuller, Joe Flynn and Leonard Nimoy.
