The national multicast network further announced the addition of The Rockford Files to COZI TV’s 2017 lineup, starting January 2 at 12 PM ET. Created by Roy Huggins and Stephen J. Cannell, the television series features James Garner as James Scott Rockford, a private investigator with a colorful past. Running his operation out of a disheveled beachfront home, Rockford focused his energies on cold cases and other mysteries escaping the radar of local law enforcement.
The series was recognized with several Daytime Emmy® Awards, including for Outstanding Drama Series.
COZI TV will also be adding the medical drama Emergency! to its 2017 network lineup, starting January 2 at 1 PM ET. Viewers are brought on a memorable ride with the first responders of Fire Station 51, in addition to receiving an inside look at the emergency room staff of Rampart General Hospital. The series was based on many of the unique situations and circumstances faced each day by the men and women of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
Actor Antonio Fargas, famous for his role as “Huggy Bear” in Starsky & Hutch, hosts COZI TV’S 2017 Preview Show this Thursday, at 8:30 PM ET.
