ABC had planned to introduce this show in a rather novel way by tying the introduction of this program into the end of "The Fugitive" (1963). The idea was for Clinton Judd to become Richard Kimble's defense attorney. ABC expected the conclusion of The Fugitive to be viewed by a large audience, which would have provided a big boost to the introduction of this new show. However, the shows were produced by different production companies, and Quinn Martin was not overly interested in idea, since he felt it might be a distraction from the much anticipated conclusion of his show.

During the U.S. 1968-69 television season, Judd for the Defense, which aired on ABC Friday nights at 10:00pm Eastern/Pacific, was scheduled against Star Trek (1966) on NBC. The theme songs for both shows were composed by Alexander Courage. In addition, both shows were canceled after that season.
