getTV To Salute Burt Reynolds With Episodes Of Classic TV Series Beginning Today

getTV will salute legendary actor Burt Reynolds, who died Thursday, by airing episodes from his classic TV series, "DAN AUGUST" and "HAWK" on Saturday, September 15 and Saturday, September 22, beginning at 12 Noon ET. Long before Burt became the "Bandit" and the #1 box office star from 1975-1982, he had lead roles in these two TV detective series.

When he was on the very cusp of superstardom, the year before his breakthrough role in "Deliverance," Reynolds played the title character, a suave police detective, in the 1971 Quinn Martin police drama "DAN AUGUST." His co-stars on the show were Norman Fell ("Three's Company/Mr. Roper) and Richard Anderson (Oscar Goldman from "The Six Million Dollar Man" and "The Bionic Woman"). Four episodes of "DAN AUGUST" will run back to back from 12 noon to 5PM ET on both Saturdays.

Late night on both Saturdays will have four back-to-back episodes of "HAWK," the B&W '60s noir cop series with Reynolds playing the title character, a Native American named John Hawk serving as a police detective in New York City. On Saturday, September 15, episodes of "HAWK" will air beginning at 12:50 AM ET (actually early Sunday for East Coasters) and on Saturday, September 22, "HAWK" episodes will air beginning at 1:10 AM ET (also actually early Sunday on the East Coast). getTV will air four additional "Hawk" episodes on Sunday, September 23 from 12 midnight ET to 5AM.

Also, at 2AM ET on Tuesday, September 11 (early Wednesday), getTV will air an episode of "THE SONNY & CHER SHOW" featuring guest star Burt Reynolds.

And on Sunday, October 21 starting at 11PM ET, getTV will again air "THE SONNY & CHER COMEDY HOUR" with Burt, followed by four episodes of "DAN AUGUST," beginning at 12 Midnight ET.
