I actually saw the original pilot for The Bold Ones: The Lawyers series, "The Sound of Anger", first run back in 1968. Guy Stockwell played the role of law firm partner Brad Darrell, but that character was replaced in the second pilot, "The Whole World is Watching", by Brian Darrell, played by Joseph Campenella, and Hal Holbrook, who went on to star in The Bold Ones: The Senator, was a university chancellor in that second pilot. The relationship between Ives and the other two lawyers was very contentious in the first pilot, whereas the three lawyers had a more cordial relationships with one another in the second one.
Spoiler alert: Actually, not really a spoiler alert because the Bold Ones pilots are not presently scheduled for anywhere.
In the first pilot, Burl Ives does an absolutely unreal job of getting the jury to ignore the overwhelming evidence and to acquit his guilty client of blowing up a small private plane. But the kicker at the end of the episode, as I remember it, was that right after the trial, it was discovered that there had been a second passenger on the plane, so there would be another murder trial...
