18 Wheels of Justice is an American crime drama series that aired from 2000 to 2001 on TNN. It starred Lucky Vanous as federal agent Michael Cates (posing as a truck driver, with a Kenworth T2000 semi-truck), and G. Gordon Liddy as Jacob Calder, the crime boss Cates was chasing. The episodes followed a format not unlike The Incredible Hulk or The Fugitive, in that the wandering Cates would meet and interact with different people and help them with their particular problems before moving on. The series was distributed by King World Productions, and was filmed at Stu Segall Productions in San Diego.
