{"title":"The Sweeney","dateDebut":"1975","dateEnd":"1975","description":"These films, at \u00a385,000 each to make, were considered very expensive at the time, but this was rewarded when most of the films were sold to other countries, with 'The Prison; and 'Regan' going to 47 countries alone.\r\n\r\n'Regan' was particularly seen as having potential for a series, especially after receiving high TV ratings. Immediately work began on 13 one-hour episodes. Most elements of the original film remained, apart from the title that got lost somehow - and 'Regan' soon became 'The Sweeney' with one series and 20 episodes.\r\n","leadImageMedUrl":null}
