Watch The Fall Guy
- 5 Seasons
The Fall Guy is an action adventure series about Colt Seavers; he is a Hollywood stuntman who also works as a bounty hunter on the side. Lee Majors played Seavers, and he even sang the show's theme song called The Unknown Stuntman. The show co-starred Heather Thomas, Douglas Barr, Jo Ann Pflug, Nedra Volz and Markie Post. The Fall Guy aired for five network seasons and produced 112 episodes. Colt Seavers narrates and introduces each episode that usually identifies what movie stunts he has recently performed. Colt always laments that despite the risk he takes each day in Hollywood, he isn't compensated well enough to make a living. He usually gets one job every episode from bail bondsmen who need Colt to track down a criminal. In most cases Colt uses his knowledge of stunt work and his rough and tumble bare-knuckle fighting skills to track down the bail jumper. There is almost always a mystery to be solved in tracking down the offender. He will often employ a similar stunt in his bounty hunter work as he used earlier in the episode on a Hollywood movie set. Colt does have some help. His cousin, Howie Munson, is a stuntman in training and has come to Colt for mentoring. Colt teaches Howie all he knows about stunt work and secures Howie's help in his bounty hunter work as well. Colt affectionately refers to Howie as "the kid." He also befriends a stuntwoman that he works with, the stunningly beautiful Jody Banks. One of Colt's biggest weapons in his arsenal is his tricked-out oversized pickup truck. Colt added several features to the vehicle, including a roll bar, off-road tires, a V8 engine, a secret hiding compartment and many other hi-tech accessories.
