Burt Reynolds recommended his friend Robert Urich to producer Aaron Spelling for this show. Reynolds and Urich were both alumni of Florida State University. Although this show lasted only two seasons, Spelling remembered Urich and later cast him in Vega$ (1978), which had a longer run. See more »
When I was a kid, that's what the viewers wanted in the police show. At the time the most realistic police show was Adam-12. In the 1960's and 1970's, Jack Webb produced the most realistic shows on television. Aaron Spelling did his thing even back then. One thing about SWAT was that they did function as a team.
