240-Robert

By Scott Schaeffer

A short-lived rescue/adventure show that seemed like a hybrid of the current hit "CHiPs" and recently cancelled "Emergency!", "240-Robert" dramatized the exploits of the real-life Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department E.S.D. unit, the Emergency Services Detail. The E.S.D. deputies were rescue paramedics as well as S.W.A.T. personnel.

John Bennett Perry (father of "Friends" star Matthew Perry) and a young Mark Harmon starred as deputies Trap and Thib. The call sign of their four-wheel-drive black and white Ford Bronco was "240-Robert-2." Providing assistance in the air was Joanna Cassidy as deputy Morgan, a chopper pilot in "240-Robert-Air." When the series returned after a hiatus Harmon and Cassidy were replaced by Stephan Burns and Pamela Hensley as, respectively, new deputies Brett and Sandy. The series aired on ABC intermittently between 1979 and 1981.

The series was created by Rick Rosner, who was also responsible for the hit show "CHiPs" two years earlier. Rosner himself was a also reserve deputy for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

I remember Morgan trying to land her helicopter like a plane due to a rotor malfunction. They spread foam on the runway to help her land smoothly. A very exciting and memorable moment.
