The show revolved around the main character of Cal "Kodiak" McKay (played by Clint Walker), an Alaska State Trooper.

The show was broadcast against NBC's mega-hit Sanford and Son. Kodiak was cancelled after the first episode, although a total of four episodes were aired. The show was filmed in Bend, Oregon Using the Old Skyliners Ski Lodge as the primary Meeting Place.
