A crime drama that focused on the lives of the detectives of New York's 65th Precinct. The emphasis in the stories was mostly on real-life crime and the human element. Season one stars were Lt. Dan Muldoon and Det. Jim Halloran; seasons 2-4 stars were Det. Adam Flint and Lt. Mike Parker. Written by
John McIntire ("Lt. Dan Muldoon") left the series midway through the first season because, reportedly, he was tired of the New York location filming grind and wanted to return to his home in California. An earlier trivia statement claimed that McIntire couldn't stand working with series star James Franciscus. However, McIntire worked with Franciscus on at least two episodes of Longstreet (1971), including the 1971 television pilot. See more »

Ladies and gentlemen, you are about to see "The Naked City." I'm Bert Leonard, the producer. This story was not photographed in a studio. Quite the contrary. The actors played out their roles in the streets and the buildings of New York itself.

On some season 2 (1960-61) episodes, the main guest star was listed before the show's regulars in the opening credits. See more »
There was no episode of this show that wasn't riveting & first rate. Every NY-based (I'm NY-based & have been off & on since I was a kid) cop show ever made from Kojak through Law & Order & NYPD Blue is totally derivative of Naked City. Interesting that for the first year the characters were based on the movie & they were great, but the replacements were even better. Just a brilliant brilliant show.
