Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Assembled for television by Playboy Productions, Family Kovack stars James Sloyan, Sarah Cunningham, Andrew Robinson, Tammi Bula and Richard Gilliland. Cunningham plays the central character, the widowed matriarch of a close Chicago family. When her oldest son (Robinson), a city functionary, is accused of bribery, the woman spearheads a concerted family effort to clear the boy of all charges. Sort of an urban Waltons, Family Kovack was the pilot film for a series that didn't take. Its first network telecast, on April 5, 1974, was also its last.
