Mod Squad's Tige Andrews Dead at 86
Tige Andrews, Emmy-nominated in 1970 for his role as The Mod Squad's Capt. Adam Greer, died on Jan. 27 of cardiac arrest, at his home in the San Fernando Valley. He was 86. Recalling her father's legacy, Barbara Andrews, one of his six children, tells the Associated Press, "He felt the show made a big difference, because it was one of the first television series to address social issues - such as drugs, prostitution and teen pregnancy - that were hush-hush before that time."
