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 2 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. Grady's parents, who were Canadian missionaries, were killed when the Viet Cong burned down their village. After the encounter, they formed a bond and were together in Vietnam for 10 months until Adam was sent back to the United States and discharged from service. Adam promised Grady that he would come back for him. In 1972 Adam became a police officer and began a 20-year search for the boy who had saved his life. They were reunited when Grady found his way to the U.S. and showed up at Adam's place.

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.
