John Hawk was a full-blooded Iroquois employed as a special detective with the New York City District Attorney's office. With partner Dan Carter, Hawk was assigned to all sorts of different cases, ranging from murder to arson to organized crime.

The show was filmed on the streets of New York City, as opposed to a studio lot. Things looked so real, that one night three NYPD cops joined in one scene and billy clubbed three extras they mistook for fleeing thieves. See more »
Hawk retains the grittiness of an earlier Screen Gems series, Naked City, but has a nice touch with it's use of color film in mostly night shots. One of the best aspects is the sound by Don Kirshner, and the very eerie nocturnal theme music by Kenyon Hopkins played while Hawk drives his 1966 Pontiac Bonneville up 7th Avenue at 11:52:59 pm (according to a digital clock).
