Crime drama series. Cases of undercover cop Dave Toma (based on the story of a real Dave Toma who appeared in five of the episodes).
Tony Musante starred in the title role as Toma with Susan Strasberg and Simon Oakland co-starring as his wife and police superior. The series was canceled after one season because Musante had only signed on for one and didn’t want to commit to a second run of episodes.
ABC didn’t want to lose the show so they signed Robert Blake to star as the second Toma. The only problem was Blake didn’t want to play a character already played by somebody else so the title was change to Baretta.
