The show revolved around the main character of Cal "Kodiak" McKay (played by Clint Walker), an Alaska State Trooper. Kodiak, always accompanied by his Eskimo sidekick Abraham Lincoln Imhook, used his four-wheel drive truck to track down desperate killers through 50,000 miles of Alaska backcountry.
The show suffered low ratings due to being 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.
The program was created by Stan Shpetner and Anthony Lawrence; Shpetner was the producer.
