Rick Hunter is a renegade cop who breaks the rules and takes justice into his own hands. Partnered with the equally stunning and rebellious Sgt. McCall, the tough-minded duo set out to crack down on L.A.'s slimiest criminals.
Sam McCloud is a Marshal from Taos, New Mexico, who takes a temporary assignment in the New York City Police Department. His keen sense of detail and detecting subtle clues, learned from his experience, enable him to nab unsuspecting criminals despite his unbelieving boss.
Television police drama starring two female cops as partners. Their contrasting personalities (one is tough and the other sensitive) strengthen them as a team, allowing each a different perspective on both personal and professional situations. Written by

In the television movie that inspired the series, Christine Cagney was played by Loretta Swit. Swit was unable to continue playing Cagney in the series, due to her contract with M*A*S*H (1972). Meg Foster took over the role of Christine Cagney. After the first season, Sharon Gless eventually won the role, and played Cagney for six years. A CBS spokesperson was quoted at the time as saying the reason for replacing Foster with Gless was the audience had trouble telling "the two leads apart". But the real reason CBS wanted to replace Foster, is because they felt that her portrayal made Cagney appear to be a lesbian. When the show was revived from cancellation after the first season, CBS demanded that Barney Rosenzweig replace Foster. See more »
Dep. Inspector Knelman:
[about a law suit filed against New York for $ 7,000,000]
Don't you find it ironic that the city of New York is paying you to accumulate evidence so that... it can be sued?
Mary Beth Lacey:
Ironic, yes sir! Also tragic. What happened to that boy shouldn't never have happened or allowed to happen, sir.
Dep. Inspector Knelman:
Ahh the very crux of the Patterson's press conference today. Their lawyer says you can't put a price tag on tragedy and in the very next breath he mentions... $ 7,000,000

Actor Sidney Clute passed away during the run of the series. In every episode after his death, his name and picture still appeared in the opening credits. That was done by the producers as a tribute to him. See more »
Tyne Daly (Christy) played Detective Mary Beth Lacey. Sharon Gless, (The trials of Rosie O"Neill) was Detective Christine Cagney. This was a show about two women who worked together and became good friends outside their job. Harvey Lacey,Tony LaTorre, was a nice and understanding husband.This show was really well done and we enjoyed watching it. It is always good to see women playing that type of role. There is one episode that stuck with me. It was about Hispanic illegal aliens in the United States living in horrible conditions, even in the attic of a building. They were chasing them and purposefully missed them, by saying: "there is nobody here." That was a nice episode where they showed a lot of compassion.
