Superdome is a 1978 American made-for-television drama film produced by ABC Circle Films. It premiered on ABC as part of The ABC Monday Night Movie series and was used to promote Super Bowl XII. It featured a cast of stars but was ridiculed for its confusing and sensational plotlines, as well as for containing no football scenes. It was directed by Jerry Jameson and written by Barry Oringer from a story by Oringer and Bill Svanoe.

At the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, both teams' star quarterbacks are preoccupied. Dave Walecki (Ken Howard) is having marital difficulties, while Jim McCauley (Tom Selleck) is involved in a shady deal with a management firm. Meanwhile, a national gambling syndicate attempts to find a way to stop the heavily favored Cougars from winning the game. All these plots are connected by a police chase of a killer who has attempted to evade law enforcement by ducking into the crowd.
