Tucker's Witch is a television series produced by Multicom Entertainment Group (MEG) that aired for one season from 1982-1983. The show was created by Tom Greene and starred Bill Morey, Alfre Woodard, and Barbara Barrie. It followed the lives of a married couple, Rick and Amanda Tucker, who both possess supernatural abilities that they use to solve crimes.

Rick is a police detective and Amanda is a freelance photographer, but they both have a secret: they are witches. Rick has the ability to sense danger and can become almost invincible in high-risk situations, while Amanda has the power of premonition and can see into the future. Together, they use their abilities to solve crimes that are too difficult for regular police work.

The show follows the couple as they navigate both their personal lives and their crime-solving adventures. They work together to help their friends and family, and often find themselves in dangerous situations. Their supernatural abilities allow them to get out of many sticky situations, but their powers also attract unwanted attention.

Throughout the series, Rick and Amanda have to keep their abilities secret from the rest of the world while trying to help those around them. They keep their powers hidden from their colleagues at the police department, and they also hide them from their friends and family.

Tucker's Witch was unique in its time as it combined elements of crime drama and supernatural fantasy. The show's creators drew inspiration from classic detective shows like Columbo and The Rockford Files, as well as the classic witch TV series Bewitched.

The show also explored themes of femininity and power. Amanda Tucker is a strong, independent woman who is not afraid to use her powers to solve crimes. She is a feminist icon for the time, demonstrating that women could be both intelligent and powerful.

Unfortunately, Tucker's Witch was not very successful and was cancelled after only one season. While the show had a loyal fan base, it struggled to find a mainstream audience. Critics blamed the show's lack of realistic crime-solving for its lack of popularity and cited the use of supernatural powers as a weakness.

Despite low ratings, Tucker's Witch attracted a devoted fan base that appreciated the show's unique blend of genres. It was also notable for its diverse cast, particularly for casting a black woman, Alfre Woodard, as the lead actress. Woodard went on to have a successful career in Hollywood and has been nominated for multiple Academy Awards.

Overall, Tucker's Witch was a short-lived but innovative television series that combined crime drama and supernatural fantasy. While it may not have been successful during its initial run, the show's unique premise and characterizations have ensured a lasting legacy.

Tucker's Witch is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on November 1, 2018.
