Short-lived series from 1976 inspired by the 1973 film.

The theme music is by Elmer Bernstein, which is presented in two entirely different presentations: the opening jazz/action arrangement, and the end credits sad synth arrangement.

All loads are in French or other languages. If one ever pops up in English, I will note it.

"The Deadly Game" (feature-length pilot)
By: Elmer Bernstein (in French; CHANNEL DELETED)

NOTE: While there is no load up, I am leaving the times incase a new one pops up. Also note: I recorded all the score from the pilot, so don't worry about it -- some time 2023 there will be two suites covering it.

  • 0:35 in.^

  • 9:52 in.^
  • 13:24 in. Is this classical music?

  • 1:06:42 in.^
  • 1:21:06 in. Some times a cue just screams a composer's name, and this is such an example: You won't be confusing this with many other composers -- it's unmistakably Elmer Bernstein.
  • 1:28:13 in.^
  • 1:30:47 in.^
  • 1:35:21 in. Closing cue which segways into the end credits music (which is some what different than the regular-episode end credits music).

    No episode loads today, just a clip is all that is available. There will be an episode Monday.

    "The Traitor in Our Midst"
    By: Lyn Murray
    Clip: (incase the episode goes down)

  • 1:27 in.
  • 3:27 in. The funky source music cue.
  • 5:50 in.

    NOTE: I recorded the full score already.

    Continuing SEASON 1:

    As I will be offline Thursday and Friday, I am posting two days worth of loads and tomorrow's as well, so nothing tomorrow.


    "The Indian"
    By: Robert Drasnin

    While there is no load currently up (channel deleted), it's clear his score was tracked into the track-job episode "Prime Evil". His score shares a number of similarities to his one effort for short-lived series "Most Wanted", in which he scored another Indian episode.

    "Every Man Must Pay His Dues"
    By: Elmer Bernstein (in French; DELETED)

    NOTE: The same channel that had the pilot, also had this one. While the channel is deleted, I did record the full score to this episodes as well. It also had the cleanest, best-sounding (and looking) copies of the opening and closing credits music, so I recorded those as well.

    "Trumpet of Time"
    By: ?????

     Posted:   Nov 23, 2022 - 7:40 AM   
     By:   Justin Boggan   (Member)

    Continuing SEASON 1:

    Oops -- realized I have nine episodes remaining and I want to finish this and all series on the last weekday of November, so one more this week.

    "Prime Evil"

    NOTE: I recorded all the score already.

    (Score: 0:00, 3:35, 6:54 [very likely Drasnin], 8:59 [source music], 11:47, 12:13 [funky source music], 14:12 [very likely Drasnin], 16:27, 22:14 [probably Drasnin], 24:01 [has to be Drasnin], 26:29 [probably Drasnin, and so should the cue after the commercial break], 33:44 [has to be Drasnin], 37:19 [has to be Drasnin], 39:49, 41:40, and 42:48 [Drasnin].)

    Thank you for your efforts here, Justin. I remember the series being shown on UK TV at the time - I don't think it's been available anywhere since. Bernstein's main title always seemed to me to be a close cousin of his theme for Saints and Sinners (1962).

    Serpico - Have there been any other other instances of a TV series where the main titles (exciting, up-beat) differ completely from the end titles (pensive, almost sad-sounding)?

    The UPN series "Seven Days" springs to mind.

    And in the reverse, "Vengeance Unlimited".

    Continuing SEASON 1:

    No loads today, sorry.


    "Rapid Fire"

    "Dawn of the Furies"

    "The Serbian Connection"

    "Danger Zone"

    Continuing SEASON 1:

    By: Thomas Talbert

  • 1:27 in.
  • 4:27 in.
  • 12:08 in.
  • 14:37 in.
  • 22:09/24:37 in.
  • 28:39 in.
  • 30:45 in.
  • 39:41 in.
  • 47:07 in.

    Perhaps a little thin sounding, but this was a good score. I cited all but one score cue and maybe one source cue. I wouldn't be opposed to the entire score being released.

    And this is the final original score for the series.

    0:00 in: should be tracked Drasnin.

    (NtM: 38:06)

    Finishing SEASON 1:

    And the rest of the series was track jobs.

    "The Party of Your Choice"
    TRACK JOB (load used)

    (Score: 0:00, 1:27 [maybe Murray], 3:00, 8:17 [maybe Murray], 15:24, 17:34, 19:58, 23:25, 33:14, 36:49, 38:29, 40:17 [maybe Parker], 42:19 [probably Drasnin], and 47:16.)

    "One Long Tomorrow"

    "A Secret Place" (final episode)

    And that was that. There were no TV movies, no remakes, no reboots, no sin-off's, etc.
