Ohara is a drama that aired on ABC.

The series focuses on an unconventional Los Angeles-based Japanese American police lieutenant named Ohara who uses spirituality methods such as meditation in his home shrine to solve crimes without the use of a gun or a partner although he would use martial arts if necessary. He often talked in the form of epigrams. He was later paired with a partner named Lt. George Shaver, who was a more conventional cop.
