A freewheeling Texas criminal lawyer had cases that often reflected the turmoil of the late '60s, with clients including civil-rights workers and draft evaders. The series only ran two years, but it was an impressive change-of-pace role for Carl Betz, who had just come off an eight-year run on 'The Donna Reed Show.' In fact, after 'Judd' was canceled by ABC, Betz won the Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series.
