James Remar and Timothy Bottoms also star.
Then, stay tuned for Get Lost In TV’s overnight event at 12 a.m. ET, with Reynolds as John Hawk, an Iroquois detective working for the New York District Attorney, in six episodes of the rare 1966 crime drama HAWK. Dealing with racial tension from both his peers and adversaries, Hawk and his partner Dan Carter (Wayne Grice) work together to solve crimes throughout the city. The series has not been seen in the U.S. for decades. Featured guests include Gene Hackman, Robert Duvall, Martin Sheen, and Charles Durning. HAWK is the first of two early Reynolds series that the network will air, with episodes of the 1970 police procedural DAN AUGUST coming to getTV’s classic programming lineup in May.”
