The Bionic Woman
The Bionic Woman was a television series spin off from The Six Million Dollar Man. The series ran on ABC from 1976-1978. It starred Lindsay Wagner as Jaime Sommers, a tennis professional who was nearly killed in a skydiving accident, and was rebuilt by Oscar Goldman and Dr. Rudy Wells, who had also rebuilt The Six Million Dollar Man. As the result of her surgical implantation, Jaime Sommers had amplified hearing, a greatly strengthened right arm, and enhanced legs, enabling her to run faster than a speeding car.
