Trivia

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 »

Quotes

[first lines]
[first season only]
Narrator: 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.

Better than new shows
24 December 1998 | by (Dunstable, MA) – See all my reviews

I remember this show quite well. I cannot remember any specific story lines but I do know that it was all filmed entirely in NYC the same way that the 1948 movie was. The black and white photography was as good as any theatrical movie of its time. I would venture to say that if this show would be rerun today in prime time, it would be as good any good cop shop being shown today. I would like to see this show put on video.
