Honey West was created by husband and wife writing duo 'Skip' and Gloria Fickling, who wrote eleven novels featuring the character in the 1950s. In April 1965, the character appeared in "Who Killed the Jackpot?", the thirtieth episode of season two of the ABC series "Burke's Law", featuring Anne Francis as Honey West, a character intended to be reminiscent of Cathy Gale or Emma Peel from the British series "The Avengers", alongside Gene Barry as LAPD Captain Amos Burke. This served as the backdoor pilot episode for "Honey West", which made its debut on ABC in September 1965. Although the series was well received, with Anne Francis receiving both Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her performance, the network cancelled the series after a single season, deciding that it would be cheaper simply to import episodes of "The Avengers" for the timeslot.

Francis Bauvier ("Aunt Bea") was a member of the cast the first year, becoming the person from "Mayberry" who logged the most hours as their particular character. The show was cancelled in 1971 despite its good ratings because CBS wanted to move to a more "city" image than the "country bumpkin" image they had with shows like "Green Acres", "The Beverly Hillbillies", and "Petticoat Junction".

16. Which actor never played the lead role in one of the four remakes of the television series "Dragnet"?

From Quiz Play It Again Sam ... And Maybe Again.

Answer: Dan Aykroyd

Dan Aykroyd played Sgt. Joe Friday in the 1987 feature length movie "Dragnet". The comedy drama co-starred Tom Hanks as Friday's partner, Detective Pep Streebek. Aykroyd never played the Joe Friday role on television. Jack Webb originated the role of Sergeant Joe Friday. Webb starred in the 1951 version of "Dragnet". The series ran for eight seasons (1951-1959), producing 276 episodes, and receiving five Primetime Emmy Awards. Webb returned to primetime television in 1967 with a remake of his original series. Harry Morgan co-starred as Friday's partner, Officer Bill Gannon. The series ran for four seasons. For each of the seasons, the year was added to the title ("Dragnet 1967", through "Dragnet 1970"). After Jack Webb's death in 1982, a new version of "Dragnet" was produced in 1989, and shown in first run syndication. The series starred Jeff Osterhage as Detective Vic Daniels and Bernard White as his partner, Detective Carl Molina. Although the names of the main characters were change, everything else remained the same. The series titled "The New Dragnet" aired 52 episodes over two seasons. A 2003 network version of "Dragnet" starred Ed O'Neill as Sergeant Joe Friday. Ethan Embry co-starred as Detective Frank Smith, Friday's partner. After 12 episodes and low ratings, the series was retooled for the final 10 episodes. The series title was changed to "L.A. Dragnet", Sergeant Joe Friday was promoted to Lieutenant, and the cast was change. Instead of a single partner, Friday supervised a team of young detectives. Overall, the series ran for two seasons with 22 episodes. Trivia ... DID YOU KNOW ... That Jack Webb planned to return with a third version of "Dragnet" in 1982. Kent McCord, who played Officer Jim Reed in Webb's series "Adam-12" had been selected to play Joe Friday's new partner. It had not been determined if McCord would play the role of Jim Reed or a new character for the new show. Pre-production work for the new series abruptly ended after Webb suffered a fatal massive heart attack on December 23, 1982. In the 1951 and 1967 versions of "Dragnet", Jack Webb paid homage to many of the police offices and ranking police staff members by using their real names, ranks, and positions in the episodes. The "names that were changed to protect the innocent" were only those of the victims, the accused criminals, and any law enforcement officers accused of wrongdoing. Many fans of the original series remember that in the final season of "Dragnet", Joe Friday was promoted to the rank of lieutenant, yet when the show returned for the 1967 run, Friday was again a sergeant. Webb would later explain in a press interview that the role of a lieutenant was mostly supervisory, and lieutenants rarely worked cases in the field. By returning the Joe Friday character to a sergeant, he would still fight crime and investigate cases in the field. According to the "Merrian-Webster Dictionary", Dragnet is defined as "a series of actions that are done by police in order to catch criminals".

From Quiz Play It Again Sam ... And Maybe Again.

Answer: Tim Daly

"The Fugitive: The Chase Continues" premiered on October 6, 2000, and starred Tim Daly as Dr. Richard Kimble. The series remained on the air for one season and broadcast 23 episodes. The plot remained the same as was in the original series. Kimble, who was wrongly convicted of the murder of his wife, escaped from custody following an accident that occurred while he was being transported to prison, and is pursued by a determined police lieutenant. The new series, unlike the original series, ended in a cliffhanger with Kimble still on the run and in search for the "one-armed" man who actually committed the crime that he was convicted of. Mikelti Washington co-starred as Lt. Philip Gerard, Kimble's determined pursuer. In 1993, "The Fugitive" was released as a feature length film, starring Harrison Ford as Dr. Richard Kimble. Tommy Lee Jones co-starred in an Oscar winning performance as Samuel Gerard, Kimble's dogged pursuer. In the film version, Gerard was portrayed as a U.S. Marshal instead of a police officer, as portrayed in both television versions. The movie also changed Gerard's first name to Samuel.
