Caruso, Belmont, Valencia and Gallagher were cops with whom Christie worked. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Look Out Sugar!
14 December 2000 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

Teresa Graves was a cast member on "Laugh-In" before headlining this cop show. Christie Love was an expert at undercover work. She relied on her street smarts and sass to get her out of danger. Her favorite ploy was to pretend that she was helpless when confronted by villians, then surprising them by using her martial arts skills on them. The series was the result of a high-rated ABC Movie Of The Week. Unfortunately, wisecracks and heavy action sequences weren't enough to keep this on the air for more than a season.
