Christie Love was a very beautiful and quite charming black woman who also happened to be a skilled undercover operative with the Los Angeles Police Department. Her smarts and skills often came in handy when posing as a prostitute, jewel thief, etc. in an effort to bring down the bad guys. Her boss was Lt. Reardon, who was replaced by Capt. Ryan. Caruso, Belmont, Valencia and Gallagher were cops with whom Christie worked. Written by

I found the show to be entertaining, but to copy cat, this was about the same time as Pam Grier - with her tough black chick movies and the other black exploitation flicks of the day, even being a pioneering show, it still was a racist show.
