Cops and Robin

john loren shannon linda

(NBC, 3/28/1978, 120 mins). An aging street cop and his partner, a robot programmed to be the perfect policeman, are assigned to protect the five year old daughter of the widow who witnessed the killing of her police officer husband and now is stalked by the gangster who murdered him. This film, which premiered on NBC, tried to breathe new life into the previous season’s ABC show “Future Cop,” in turn recycled from the 1977 TV movie of that name also with Borgnine, Shannon and Amos.
