S.W.A.T. is an American crime drama television series, based on the 1975 television series of the same name created by Robert Hamner and developed by Rick Husky.

Premise[edit]

The series centers on Sergeant Daniel "Hondo" Harrelson. A lifetime Los Angeles local and former Marine, Hondo has been tapped to lead a new “last stop” Special Weapons and Tactics unit, because he is L.A. born and raised, Hondo feels deeply loyal not only to his “brothers in blue” but also to the people they serve. This makes him particularly qualified to lead the team and build a bridge between the force and the community.
