One and Out Week: Police Squad!

Fresh off of the success of their classic comedy Airplane!, David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker were entertaining tons of offers for various projects. One of these projects was Police Squad!

Airing on ABC, this unique comedy featured Detective Frank Drebin and his deadpan reactions to the bizarre things that happened around him. Sadly, it never found an audience and lived for one short season. Luckily, however, Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker turned the television show into the successful Naked Gun movie franchise
