Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Raymond Burr attempted a return to weekly television in this feature-length pilot for the proposed series The Jordan Chance. Having spent seven years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, attorney Frank Jordan (Burr) dedicates his life to defending others who have been falsely accused. To this end, he sets up "The Jordan Chance," a foundation for those who have been victimized by the imperfections of the American legal system. His first client is Elena Delgado (Maria-Elena Cordero), a young Hispanic woman who has been tried and convicted in the "court of public opinion" for murdering her lover. The Jordan Chance made its CBS debut on December 12, 1978. Unfortunately for Burr, a subsequent series failed to materialize.
