Aired on NBC from January 23, 1983 (1983-01-23) to March 8, 1987 for 5 seasons and 98 episodes of about 48 minutes each.

The story featured Col. John "Hannibal" Smith (George Peppard) and his A-Team who were framed for robbing the Bank of Hanoi at the end of a tour in Viet Nam. They were sent to a US military prison from which they escaped, and became vigilantes for hire.

The A-Team escapees were chased by Col. Lynch, and later in the series by Col. Roderick Decker (Lance LeGault). The group were hired as vigilantes around the globe while on the run.

Col. Hannibal was the A-Team leader and was an expert at disguises. Face (Dirk Benedict) was the team's con artist and also smooth with the ladies. Sgt. Bosco "B.A." Baracus (Mr. T), the BA stands for Bad Attitude, was the A-Team mechanic and "Howling Mad" Murdock (Dwight Schultz) was an expert pilot and a certified looney who escaped from a mental institution with the help of the A-Team when needed.

The show has achieved cult status in the United States. It has also remained popular overseas, for instance in the United Kingdom, the show has been on-air almost continuously in some form since it was first aired in that country in July 1983.

In 2003, after a research conducted by web-portal Yahoo! amongst 1,000 television viewers, The A-Team was voted as the one "oldie" television show viewers would most like to see revived, beating out other popular televisions series such as The Dukes of Hazzard and Knight Rider.
