Dragnet 1966

Cult Favorite Movies

NBC

Prolific police procedural Dragnet already existed as a television series and a theatrical feature film in the ‘50s and it would return again as a Dan Akroyd comedy in the ‘80s, but in the interim, it was had a three-season television revival in the ‘60s, aptly titled Dragnet 1967. The film Dragnet 1966 was confusingly released in 1969 because it was originally meant as a television pilot. Somehow, Dragnet 1967 began airing before Dragnet 1966 could be released, so after three years of waiting, they just released it as a made-for-TV movie set in the Dragnet universe.
