The Girl in the Empty Grave

alden griffith deputy series

(NBC, 9/20/1977, 120 mins). In this pilot film for a series about a small town police chief, an investigation is launched after a girl, believed to have died months earlier, turns up at the funeral of her murdered parents. In search of a successful follow-up series to “The Andy Griffith Show,” Griffith played his familiar homespun law enforcer, this time without laughs, and without a series. Originally titled “Abel.”
