This pilot episode of The Young Lawyers aired in 1969, with the idea of a firm of young idealistic law students who would take up the causes of those who could not normally afford lawyers. The show was created to appeal to a younger audience, which at that time was not interested in the shows that were being offered by the networks. The original cast of the show included Zalman King as Aaron Silverman, a passionate and idealistic Jewish lawyer who still saw the world through rose-tinted glasses, and Judy Pace as a street-wise black female attorney. The series ran for one season on ABC, starting out with most of their cases involving the run-of-the-mill police brutality and the like, but by the end of the series, it was tackling much more serious issues. Keep your eye open for some familiar faces such as Richard Pryor, Louise Latham, Keenan Wynn, and Anjanette Comer.
