Genre: Crime Drama
Premise: Newspaper editor Britt Reid has a secret that only a couple of close confidantes know -- when crime strikes, he becomes Green Hornet, a crime-fighting superhero. ``Green Hornet,'' based on comic books of the same name, lasted for only one season on ABC, but it had a significant impact on American entertainment. The show introduced martial artist Bruce Lee to American audiences. Lee, who starred in the series as Green Hornet's sidekick, Kato, would go on to become arguably the most-famous actor in martial arts films in America.
