The Immortal is an American science fiction show aired on ABC in 1970.  The Immortal is based on the novel The Immortals by James Gunn. 

The premise of The Immortal is that Ben Richards, a man in perfect health, looking more like 25 years old instead of his 42, goes to donate blood.  Upon analyzing the blood, the doctors discover that it contains all known antibodies and immunities, rendering him effectively immortal.  Richards’ blood is given to a billionaire on his deathbed, and after a remarkable recovery the billionaire attempts to use his wealth to convince Richards to stay with him and continue providing him with his special blood. When Richards declines, the billionaire turns to more nefarious methods, having Richards imprisoned, and funds a hunt after Richards escapes. 

Most episodes focus on Richards’ continued flight from the billionaire's forces and the people he meets along the way.
