Robert A. Cinader (November 10, 1924 – November 16, 1982) was an American television producer best known for his work on two NBC series packaged by actor/producer Jack Webb's Mark VII Limited, Adam-12 and Emergency!. The latter show in particular was widely credited by observers as one of the most important efforts to promote the widespread adoption of paramedic services by fire departments and hospitals in the U.S.A native New Yorker and an Army veteran, Cinader first wrote for Holiday Magazine and later became head of the United Nations' publications operation. Then he turned to the field of television syndication, working for the William Morris Agency and later for NBC's syndication division, where he created a 1957 adventure series, The Silent Service, a Dragnet-like semi-documentary anthology about Naval submarines. Afterward, he worked for both Hal Roach and Red Skelton in the early 1960s. While working a stint at Warner Brothers, Cinader was approached by Webb (a former head of the WB TV operation) to assist him in producing his 1967-70 revival of Dragnet, for Universal Studios. While on that job, he devised a show for Mark VII that told the story of the police beat from the perspective of two LAPD patrol officers. The result, Adam-12, ran on NBC from 1968 to 1975; Cinader was also the producer of that program during the early part of its run.In 1971, while brainstorming for new program ideas, Cinader heard about a trial paramedic program that Los Angeles County was undertaking with funding by the California State Legislature. He became so enthralled with the idea that he persuaded Webb and Universal to make an entire show about the phenomenon. Emergency! was set in a fictional fire station, with trained firefighters attending to first aid and primary care of sick and injured victims on the scene, while electronically transmitting medical information to, and receiving instructions from, doctors and/or nurses at the fictional Rampart hospital. The show debuted as a mid-season replacement in early 1972, and despite facing the top-rated All in the Family for most of its run on Saturday nights, Emergency! managed to gain a large following among young viewers. NBC spun off the show into a Saturday-morning cartoon series for two years in the mid-1970s. The prime-time show itself ran for six seasons as a weekly show and two more as a series of two-hour made-for-TV movies. Cinader eventually became its executive producer; during the 1973-74 season, he also helmed Mark VII's Chase, a similar adventure-based show. The following year, he would supervise an Emergency! spin-off of sorts, Sierra, a show that lasted only 13 weeks. He produced two 1979 miniseries The Rebels and The Seekers, as well as the 1980 miniseries Condominium.Just prior to his death, Cinader produced the first six episodes of Knight Rider, a new series from Glen A. Larson. The show would go on to phenomenal success after Cinader's death.
