JAG (the American military acronym for Judge Advocate General) is an American action television series created by Donald P. Bellisario and conceived as "Top Gun meets A Few Good Men" which depicts JAG officers applying the stipulations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and international law.

JAG aired in the USA from 23 September, 1995 to 29 April, 2005, originally on NBC and later on CBS. There are 227 hour-long episodes in 10 seasons.

JAG originally aired in South Africa on SABC3 from 9 February, 1996 to 30 December, 2005. It later aired on DStv's M-Net Series and Universal channels. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 3 premiered on Universal Channel on Tuesday 29 January 2013, at 12h15. New episodes broadcast daily, on weekdays. There are 24 episodes in the third season.


JAG (military-speak for Judge Advocate General) is an adventure drama about this elite legal wing of officers trained as lawyers who investigate, prosecute and defend those accused of crimes in the military, including murder, treason and terrorism.

Navy Cmdr. Harmon "Harm" Rabb, an ace pilot turned lawyer, and Marine Lt. Col. Sarah "Mac" MacKenzie, a beautiful by-the-book officer, are colleagues who hold the same high standards but find themselves clashing when they choose different routes to get to the same place.

The unmistakable chemistry between them must be held at bay for professional reasons as they traverse the globe together with a single mission: to search for and discover the truth.

Helping them with their mission is Navy Lt. Cmdr. Bud Roberts, a lawyer who proved his grit and determination when, after losing a leg in a land mine field while on a mission, fought back and became even better at his job, and Cmdr. Sturgis Turner, a JAG lawyer who was Harm's friend at the Naval Academy and now has a friendly rivalry in and out of the courtroom with him, as well as with Lt. Cmdr. Roberts.

Also on the team is P.O. Jennifer Coates, formerly Admiral Chegwidden's outspoken assistant, and assigned in later seasons to help the new JAG settle into the job.
