getTV will salute legendary actor Burt Reynolds by airing episodes from his classic TV series DAN AUGUST and HAWK on Saturday, September 15 and Saturday, September 22, beginning at 12p ET. Long before Burt became the “Bandit” and the #1 box office star from 1975-1982, he had lead roles in these two TV rarely rerun detective series.
When he was on the very cusp of superstardom - the year before his breakthrough role in DELIVERANCE - Reynolds played the title character, a suave police detective, in the 1971 Quinn Martin police drama DAN AUGUST. His co-stars on the show were Norman Fell (THREE'S COMPANY) and Richard Anderson (THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN and THE BIONIC WOMAN). Four episodes of DAN AUGUST will run back to back from 12p to 5p ET on both Saturdays.
