According to Wikipedia, The Six Million Dollar Man is an American television series about a former astronaut with bionic implants working for the OSI (which was usually referred to as the Office of Scientific Intelligence, the Office of Scientific Investigation or the Office of Strategic Intelligence). The show was based on the novel Cyborg by Martin Caidin, and during pre-production, that was the proposed title of the series. It aired on the ABC network as a regular series from 1974 to 1978, following three television movies [that] aired in 1973.
The title role of Steve Austin was played by Lee Majors, who subsequently became a pop culture icon of the 1970s. A spin-off of the show was produced, The Bionic Woman, as well as several television movies featuring both eponymous characters.
During his Six Million Dollar Man years, Majors was married to Farah Fawcett, who was starring in the hit television show Charlie’s Angels at the same time. The two were considered to be a power couple in Hollywood, California.
Other American television roles Majors may be known for include Heath Barkley in the TV series The Big Valley (1965 – 1969) and as Colt Seavers in The Fall Guy (1981–1986).
