This week we review Police Squad (Series 1 Episode 5)Created by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker, and starred Leslie Nielsen as Frank Drebin, Police Squad was first broadcast in the United States on the ABC network in 1982.A spoof of police procedurals, the series featured Zucker, Abrahams, and Zucker's usual sight gags, wordplay and non sequiturs. While a parody of many television shows and movies, it bore a particular resemblance to the Lee Marvin cop show M Squad (in particular the opening credits) and the late 1960s series Felony Squad.TV Guide ranked it #7 on it’s list of 60 shows that were "Cancelled Too Soon”.Created by Zucker, Abrahams & ZuckerProduced by Rick Correll & Deborah HwangDirected by variousA Paramount Production.Police Squad is available here: https://amzn.to/3zx6CNk The Comedy Slab Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spreaker, Stitcher, iHeart Radio, Spotify and Youtube.
