12 episodes filmed but only 7 originally shown.
The series was shot on location at San Diego Zoo and Los Angeles Zoo.A Peaceable Kingdom stars Lindsay Wagner as the recently hired managing director of the Los Angeles County Zoo, who was also recently widowed with three children. Her zoologist colleagues included Tom Wopat and David Ackroyd.

The remaining episodes aired some years later in syndication.
