Hooperman is an American comedy-drama series which aired on ABC from September 23, 1987 until July 26, 1989. The show centered on the professional and personal life of San Francisco police Inspector Harry Hooperman, played by John Ritter. The series was created by Steven Bochco and Terry Louise Fisher, who were the team responsible for creating L.A. Law. Though not the first comedy-drama — in fact, the long-running M*A*S*H, which could also be categorized as one, had the highest-rated TV episode of all time with its series finale just four years earlier — Hooperman was considered the vanguard of a new television genre when it premiered, and critics coined the term "dramedy" to describe it.
