The series originally aired in South Africa on the SABC in the late '70s and early '80s. It was one of the first programmes to air on South African television, which began operations in 1975.

Synopsis

An independent-minded police detective solves crimes on the streets of New York City.

Lieutenant Theo Kojak (Telly Savalas) is a bald, lollipop-sucking detective also known for his trademark catch-phrase, "Who Loves Ya, Baby?"

At work in the New York Precinct, prior to loading up several cases on the scene of the crime, he frequently supports and often has a close bond with each of his workers.

There's Captain Frank MacNeil (Dan Frazer), his boss who gets promoted to Chief of Detectives in Manhattan later in the series; Detective Bobby Crocker (Kevin Dobson), whom he has always admired and who is his loyal partner; Detective Stavros (George Savalas, the real-life brother of Telly); and Detective Rizzo (Vince Conti).

Kojak is stubborn and tenacious in his investigation of crimes - and also displays a dark, cynical wit, along with a tendency to bend the rules if it brought a criminal to justice.

Despite his difficult work, Kojak tirelessly brings criminals to justice while staying upbeat and good-natured.
