Cade’s County (CBS 1971-1972, Glenn Ford, Edgar Buchanan)



Crime drama series. Sheriff Sam Cade, working out of the town of Madrid, California (Madrid County was the setting for the series), was responsible for law enforcement throughout the county. He was assisted by veteran deputy J.J. Jackson and three younger deputies: Arlo, Rudy and Pete.

Early in the series, Joannie was the police dispatcher but was later replaced by Betty Ann, both of whom were American Indians. The role of Pete was played by Glenn Ford’s real-life son, Peter.
