Notes[edit]

The one season program aired on Wednesday nights on ABC in the fall of 1985, it was directed by Bobby Roth, now known for the series Prison Break. It is also known for its popular theme song "Just A Job To Do" by Genesis. Stoney Jackson, who portrayed "Mackey," showed up in dozens of television series as a guest star and is also credited as one of the lead dancers in Michael Jackson's video "Beat It".

This show follows the smash hit success of Miami Vice, which it greatly resembled in style and content, and came from the same production company.
