Assisting Sheriff Hildy were:

  • George Wyner as Deputy Max Rubin who was passed over for the job as sheriff. He challenged Hildy's authority and often sabotaged her efforts in hopes of getting Hildy to quit.
  • Lou Richards as Deputy Dennis Putnam
  • Guich Koock as Deputy Hugh Mulcahy
  • Leonard Lightfoot as Deputy Alvin Wiggins

At home, Hildy had to deal with her family which included her mother Gussie Holt (Pat Carroll) who moved from the East Coast to Lake County to help run the household and supervise the children Kenny (Taliesin Jaffe) and Allison (Nicky Rose) so Hildy could succeed as a "lady" sheriff.

TRIVIA NOTE: The series began as a pilot entitled CASS MALLOY starring Caroline Williams. It aired on CBS on 21 July 1982. When the series was set to hit prime time, actress Priscilla Barnes was slated to play the role of the sheriff, but Suzanne Somers assumed the role in a last minute casting change.
