Virtual SALT Three-Session Class: The Evolution of Police TV Dramas
Ever wonder what cop shows cops watch? Here is the opportunity to learn about the television heroes of yesterday like Lee Marvin in M Squad and Sergeant ‘Just the facts, ma’am’ Friday’ from Dragnet, to later shows, such as Hill Street Blues. Led by Professor of Criminal Justice Dennis Connelly, this class will discuss the television shows that accurately attempt to depict policing, such as, Police Story, to those that are not as accurate. We will view and discus scenes from the selected shows while discovering how the shows were developed, discussing technical advisors, and learning interesting facts about television and the police force. This course will take place online via Zoom. A link and complete instructions will be sent out by email a few days prior to the event.
