Summary of Season 1 (1978) - 4 discs

When professional basketball player Ken Reeves (Ken Howard) suffers a serious injury, his career comes to a grinding halt. But when an old friend -- who's now the principal of a Los Angeles inner-city high school -- offers him a job as a coach, it could be his chance for a comeback. This 1970s television drama spawned the careers of a crop of young directors, including Timothy Van Patten ("Deadwood") and Kevin Hooks ("Doogie Howser, M.D.").
