JAG

JAG is an American legal drama television show with a distinct military motif, created by Donald P. Bellisario, and produced by Belisarius Productions in association with Paramount Network Television. The primary season was co-produced with NBC Productions. Originally conceived like a High Gun meets a Couple of Good Men, the pilot episode of JAG aired on NBC on September 23, 1995. However, the show was canceled May 22, 1996 after completing 79th in the ratings, leaving one incident unaired. Network CBS found the string to get a midseason replacement, beginning on January 3, 1997. CBS's decision to air JAG proved to be a fantastic move, since JAG was on the air for 2 additional seasons and for all seasons rose in the ratings. JAG spawned the hit show NCIS, which often spun another struck off, NCIS: LosAngeles. Altogether, 227 episodes were produced over 10 seasons and JAG was during its 5th season seen in more than 100 countries. JAG was so popular that it entered syndication in 1999 and it's regularly replicated.
