CULVER CITY, CA – Monday, May 8, 2017 – getTV presents beloved leading man Burt Reynolds in the rare 1970 police drama DAN AUGUST, airing 10 classic episodes as part of the network’s“Get Lost In TV” block on Sunday, May 21, starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
DAN AUGUST stars Reynolds—one year before his breakthrough role in the classic thriller DELIVERANCE—as the titular lieutenant investigating the homicide beat in his hometown of Santa Luisa, CA. August’s job is complicated by figures from his past, with whom he often finds himself at odds, as he works to keep the streets safe with the help of his partner, Sgt. Wilentz (Norman Fell), and Chief Untermeyer (Richard Anderson, three years before his star turn on THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN).
The DAN AUGUST “Get Lost In TV” block features a slew of impressive guest appearances, bringing together future famous duos such as Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams before they joined the Rebellion as Han Solo and Lando Calrissian in STAR WARS; as well as John Ritter, in just his second acting role, and Norman Fell before they met up at the Regal Beagle on THREE’S COMPANY; and Donna Mills and Joan Van Ark before they moved into KNOTS LANDING. Other notable guests include Mickey Rooney, Martin Sheen, Larry Hagman, Ricardo Montalban, Lee Meriwether, Carolyn Jones, Vera Miles, Dabney Coleman, and Gary Busey in his third acting role.
