Street Justice is an American action crime drama series starring Carl Weathers and Bryan Genesse. The series began airing in syndication in 1991, and was canceled in 1993 after two seasons.

Synopsis[edit]

The series revolves around U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier-turned-metropolitan police detective, Adam Beaudreaux (Weathers) (b. 1948), and Grady Jameson (Genesse), a martial arts expert. As a child, Grady saved Adam's life when he was wounded in action during the Vietnam War. After the encounter, the two never saw each other again and, in 1972, when Adam became a cop not long after being discharged from service, he vowed to find the boy who saved his life. Nineteen years later, Adam finds Grady and discovers that Grady's parents, who were Canadian missionaries in Vietnam, were killed and the boy was left to fend for himself, even spending a decade in prison.

Adam puts Grady to work at the bar he owns with his friend, Malloy (Charlene Fernetz), the daughter of his deceased partner. Grady soon begins helping Adam on cases using the knowledge he picked up living on the streets along with his martial arts training.
