Close, and yet...
"Dragnet" (1989) was a pretty straight-forward re-do of the classic Jack Webb series, just swapping out Joe Friday and Frank Smith (or Bill Gannon, depending on your era) for Daniels and Malina. The format was the same: a half-hour police procedural drawn from real LAPD cases, complete with the requisite "The story you are about to see is true; the names have been changed to protect the innocent." My only real problems were the omission of the classic "Danger Ahead" theme (you know: "da da-dum da"), and the obnoxious music-video-style opening titles. Not that anyone else noticed, as the show was gone in a year, a victim of really real police stories on "COPS". Note: Despite the time-frame, this show was unrelated to the 1987 Dan Ackroyd film.
