Description:
The New Adventures of Perry Mason (sometimes referred to as The New Perry Mason or merely as Perry Mason) is a revival of the long-running hit television series about Erle Stanley Gardner's brilliant defense attorney, but without the participation of any members of the original cast. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, it was broadcast by CBS, the same network which had aired the original series, during the 1973-74 season. A total of 15 episodes were produced and aired.

(This short-lived series is not to be confused with the long-running series of TV movies which starred Raymond Burr and Barbara Hale from the original series, and which were originally aired from 1985 until shortly before Burr's death in 1993.)

Synopsis

All of the original major characters of the original series appeared in the revival, along with Gertie, a receptionist seldom seen in the original (and played by Connie Cezon on the few occasions when she was), and the plots and their devices were along the lines of the original. The familiar theme song of the original, "Park Avenue Beat," was not present; instead being replaced by a generic dramatic fanfare.

However, the audiences were not of similar size and this revival was cancelled at midseason, after failing to overtake NBC's The Wonderful World of Disney and ABC's The FBI in the ratings in its Sunday night time slot.
