Empty Copper Sea is the reissue title for the made-for-TV mystery Travis McGee. Sam Elliot stars as Travis McGee, the "been there, done that" private eye created by novelist John McDonald. McGee's assignment this time is personal: he hopes to help clear the name of his old pal, charter boat skipper Van Harder (Richard Farnsworth). When his boat ran aground, a person was killed, and Harder has been accused of negligence. McGee, however, has reason to believe that the "victim" is still alive and part of a larger conspiracy. The script was adapted by Stirling Silliphant from the McDonald novel Empty Copper Sea. Conceived as the pilot for a potential TV series, Travis McGee first aired May 18, 1983.
