Life on Mars

Lee Tergesen plays Assistant District Attorney Lee Crocker in the U.S. version of this TV series imported from Britain.

Lee's part was set up to be a recurring role, but he was only in two episodes: the second and briefly in the seventh.

In the ABC series, Jason O'Mara starred as Detective Sam Tyler. In the opening episode, Sam is hurtled back in time to 1973 from 2008 after being hit by a car while chasing down a criminal.

The Real Adventures of the Unreal Sam Tyler
Episode 1.2 - Oct. 16, 2008

In the second episode, Detective Sam Tyler dives into a case involving a string of fatal robberies at check cashing stores. The squad winds up suspecting fellow police officers are involved. Tyler goes over the head of his lieutenant (Lt. Gene Hunt, played by Harvey Keitel) to talk to ADA Crocker about the case. This makes Tyler unpopular with his colleagues and Lt. Hunt, of course. But it gets the job done.

Lee has three or four scenes in the episode. At the end of the episode, we see that ADA Crocker is involved romantically with policewoman Annie Norris (played by Gretchen Mol).

The Man Who Sold The World
Episode 1.7 - Nov. 20, 2008

Lee's fellow Oz alumnus, Dean Winter, appears in this episode as Detective Sam Tyler's father. Lee is in it briefly toward the beginning, relating the dastardly deeds of the Pignato family, kidnappers and mutilators extraordinaire.
