Hunter [#3] (police drama, starring Fred Dryer)

    (CBS Primetime, 1984 - 1991)

    [Former football player Fred Dryer starred as a modern L. A.
     police sergeant named Rick Hunter in this precursor series
     of the more realistic police procedurals of the 1990s; although
     the series began in a bad time slot (opposite the hit "Dallas")
     the networks allowed producer Stephen J. Cannell to fine-tune the 
     series with changes in plots and characters until it resonated with
     the viewing public who rewarded it with a six-season run;

     This is the third and most successful of three series named 
    "Hunter" or "The Hunter" which aired on U.S. network television; 
     there was even a 4th series by this name on Australian television]
