Considered to be the only stinker of the four series in which Janssen starred.
It lasted one season.
"True to executive producer Jack Webb's style, the stories for O'HARA were culled directly from actual cases within Treasury Department files. O'HARA, in fact, was the first and only TV series to be produced with the approval and cooperation of every division in the U.S. Treasury. The authenticity, however, couldn't save the series, which languished in a time slot opposite "The Partridge Family," the number 16-rated series of the season."
