Quincy M.E. (abbreviated from this point on as QME) was a weekly television series appearing on NBC from 1976 – 1983, which pitted Los Angeles Chief Deputy Medical Examiner Quincy (Jack Klugman) against a system of common and uncommon abuses. Here, he was forced to scientifically document and pull out the punches against social injustices and the bureaucracy that typically accompanies them. Whether it be an unscrupulous pharmaceutical house, supplying dangerous over-the-counter drugs to non-licensed “pill shops” or foreign diplomats confronting chemically-enlightened assassins visiting the greater Los Angeles area, Quincy has battled more charlatans, villains, and mobsters than any other dedicated pathologist!
