The Bold Ones: The Senator (also known as The Senator) is an American political television drama series that aired on NBC from 1970 through 1971, lasting for nine episodes (including one pilot movie). The series stars Hal Holbrook as Senator Hays Stowe, an idealistic crusader of political and social issues.

The Senator was part of The Bold Ones, a rotating series of dramas that also included The New Doctors (with E.G. Marshall), The Lawyers (with Burl Ives), and The Protectors (with Leslie Nielsen).
