The Lloyd Bridges Show - Synopsis - Netflix

In the first fourteen episodes, from September to January, Bridges played the author Adam Shepherd who was transformed into the main character of each episode. In January, the program, considered in retrospect to have been highly innovative, became a straightforward anthology with Bridges hosting each episode, much as Ronald Reagan had done with the General Electric Theater and Jane Wyman had prevailed with Jane Wyman Presents. The program featured Bridges's sons, Jeff and Beau Bridges, in occasional guest-starring roles. The premiere episode is entitled “Wheresoever I Enter”. “A Pair of Boots” casts Bridges as a Confederate whose truce with the Union Army is threatened by a southern soldier's desire to reclaim a pair of shoes stolen by a northerner. Co-stars in the episode are son Beau Bridges. Royal Dano, and Seymour Cassel. In the episode “My Daddy Can Beat Your Daddy”, authored by Robert Towne, the screenwriter of Chinatown, Bridges plays an aging boxer fighting a match against his own son. Co-stars in the segment are son Jeff Bridges, Gary Lockwood, and Mary Murphy.
