In Rod Serling’s adaptation of Irving Wallace’s novel, James Earl Jones becomes America’s first black President due to the accidental death of POTUS and the House Speaker and an ailing VP. Determined to be his own man, he contends with establishment machinations and black activists’ demands and faces an international crisis when an African American (Georg Stanford Brown) is accused of the attempted assassination of South Africa’s defense minister.
