King Company is headed by Lt. Gil Hanley (Rick Jason), with help from his second in command, Lt. Chip Saunders (Vic Morrow); the excellent ensemble cast included a large number of guest stars in addition to the series regulars. Known for its realism, the show was valued for its insight into the conditions of war as in real life the conflict in Vietnam raged on.
