The cases of an easy going ex-convict turned private investigator.
There have been at least two attempts to make a feature film or to remake the series. The best known was the 2010 attempt at a new series, with proposed casting of Dermot Mulroney as Jim Rockford, Alan Tudyk as Dennis Becker, and Beau Bridges as Joseph "Rocky" Rockford. The most recent feature film attempt was to star Vince Vaughn, but has been "in development" with Universal Pictures since 2012. As of July 2014, those attempts have been unsuccessful, in large part, because of the difficulty in casting the particularly personalized roles of Jim, Rocky, and Becker.
Joseph 'Rocky' Rockford: I am THROUGH talking to you! Look at you, an inch or two to the right and you'd be missing that eye!
Jim Rockford: Yeah, but look at it this way, an inch or two to the left and he'd have missed me completely.
Throughout the series, the Los Angeles Police Department responds to calls at Rockford's trailer in Malibu although it is not part of their jurisdiction. The Los Angeles County Sheriff would be the proper agency.
The credits for guest stars, writers and other upper-level crew did not always appear right away, sometimes appearing as late as ten minutes into the episode.
