Dial Hot Line

(ABC, 3/8/1970, 120 mins). The concept that eventually became Vince Edwards’ “Matt Lincoln” series (1970-71) revolves around a psychiatric telephone service with Edwards as head man and several younger players taking to the street—in the best tradition of “The Mod Squad” and getting involved with people with myriads of problems. The later series, although short-lived, did not affect Edwards’ career adversely, but the other four regulars never went on to become household names. John Badham, the pilot’s associate producer, subsequently moved into directing and did such moneymakers as “SaturdayNight Fever” and “Dracula” for the big screen, as well as several television movies.
