Police Woman Doll
Police Woman (NBC, 1974-1978) was one of the first popular cop shows on TV to have a female character in the leading role as Sergeant Pepper Anderson, played by actor Angie Dickinson. This pioneering series lead the way for others to follow, particularly with regard to leading TV roles for actresses, which at that time were few and far between.
