The 1985 TV series Our Family Honor opened to excellent reviews, but the ratings were tepid and the project lasted a mere three months. The series spotlighted two rival New York families: The McKays, three generations of law enforcement officers, and the Danzigs, who are organized-crime functionaries. Kenneth McMillan and Eli Wallach played rival patriarches Patrick McKay and Vincent Danzig, respectively. In the 2-hour pilot for Our Family Honor, Patrick McKay is a candidate for police commissioner. Vincent Danzig can't accept this contingency, thus he contrives to have Patrick's son's partner killed, with $10,000 of mob money stuffed in the corpse's pockets.
