Elvis Presley is not dead. Instead, the King is going to be a TV series on ABC in the fall, the network is expected to announce this week. The network earlier this month gave the go-ahead for Priscilla Presley and two longtime friends of the singer, Rick Husky and Jerry Schilling, to shoot a pilot and three episodes of a half-hour dramatic series, "Elvis: Good Rockin," they said this weekend.

Victoria Principal keeps changing around. Ordinarily she's pretty and very, very well lit. She was Bobby's well-formed wife on "Dallas," later a high-ticket mistress, a blind avenger, a wily prosecutor and others. In a diverting, trickily plotted psychological twister, "Don't Touch My Daughter," airing at 9 p.m. Sunday on Channels 4, 36 and 39, she's a dowdy high school math teacher named Linda.

The TV movie "In the Line of Duty: A Cop for the Killing" (Sunday at 9 p.m. on NBC Channels 4, 36, 39) doesn't quite know whether it wants to be "The Onion Field" or "The A-Team." Its ostensible subject is the grief affecting other cops after a policeman's murder.

As biographical truth, ABC's "Elvis" may be nuthin' but a hound dog. As entertainment, though, this new series about one of the most influential performers of our time promises to be an utter delight. Premiering at 9:30 tonight on Channels 7, 3, 10 and 42 in advance of moving to its regular time slot at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, "Elvis" is that bold prime-time rarity: a half-hour series that is entirely drama and shimmers with the look and production values of a weekly minimovie.

Last spring, ABC's mid-season series "China Beach" became an instant hit by exploring the lives of the women behind the lines in the Vietnam War. This fall, "Tour of Duty," the CBS Vietnam series, which struggled in the ratings last season as it tracked the men of one platoon through the horrors of combat, will move the action from the jungle into Saigon--mainly to bring women into the story.

Tom Hooker loved to tell his family stories about his glory days on the Los Angeles Police Department. And, if some of his yarns were strikingly similar to those in the "T.J. Hooker" television series of the mid-1980s, Hooker had a story for that, too. Retired from the force, Hooker was working as a security guard when the TV drama first aired, starring William Shatner as a hardened hero cop shaken by a tattered marriage and the shooting death of his partner.
