About the Book

The Fugitive made its debut on ABC on September 17, 1963. Over the next four seasons, the show enjoyed enormous commercial and critical success. Millions of fans followed the heroic exploits of Dr. Richard Kimble (David Janssen) as he eluded police lieutenant Philip Gerard (Barry Morse) and doggedly pursued the killer of his wife, the notorious one-armed man. The four-year television run was a commercial and critical success and the 1993 movie of the same name sparked renewed interest in the show. The coverage is episode-by-episode: title, cast lists, director, writer, original airdate, and a comprehensive plot synopsis.
