Directed by Jerry Jameson
It’s the biggest event of the year—the Super Bowl! But the star players for the Cougars, gathered in New Orleans for the big game, are preoccupied with some serious off-the-field issues. Dave Walecki’s (Ken Howard, 1776) marriage to his wife Nancy (Susan Howard, TV’s Dallas) is falling apart, while Jim McCauley (Tom Selleck, An Innocent Man) is involved in a shady deal with a management firm that could destroy his career. But that’s nothing compared to the real drama. There’s an assassin killing off many of the team’s personnel (as well as their chances of winning)! David Janssen (S.O.S. Titanic) stars as the team manager, who races against time to identify the killer before it’s too late. This made-for-television thriller was directed by veteran filmmaker Jerry Jameson (Airport ’77, Raise the Titanic) and co-stars Edie Adams (The Oscar), Donna Mills (Play Misty for Me), Van Johnson (23 Paces to Baker Street), Vonetta McGee (The Eiger Sanction), Jane Wyatt (Pitfall), Robin Mattson (Return to Macon County), M. Emmet Walsh (Blood Simple) and NFL legends Bubba Smith (Police Academy) and Dick Butkus (TV’s Blue Thunder).
