Storyline

Dani Reynolds is photographer. Her life changes after her husband dies. She learned that he was the mild mannered man he said he was but was in reality a government agent. When she found out that he was murdered, she recruited a former Vietnam Vet Mac Harper to help her find her husbands killers. After doing that, Henry Towner, her husband's boss, offered her her husband's job. Basically, she would continue being a photographer and Mac was one of her models. And Henry would send them anywhere in the world where there are Americans in trouble or criminals that need to be apprehended or enemies of the U.S. that had to be stopped, and they acted pretty much on their own. When Jon-Erik Hexum who played Mac died, Jack Striker joined the show as an actual agent who joined Dani's team as the new model. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Trivia

On October 12, 1984, Jon-Erik Hexum was on the 20th Century Fox stage #18, filming for Cover Up (1984). Between scenes, while the director of photography and crew set up camera positions and lighting for the final day's scene of a very long filming schedule, Hexum took his usual break and decided to stay on the bed, where he practiced loading blanks into a revolver on a night stand. The prop master assistant talked with Hexum as Hexum held the pistol in his hand, spinning the cartridge, acting as if he was planning a game of Russian Roulette. The UPM came into the set and announced an additional scene. The film crew had been very lucky with all of the day's scheduled scenes, and had been looking forward to finishing early. Hexum was handing the gun to the assistant prop master when Hexum suddenly pulled the gun back, raised his hand holding the pistol, pointed it at his temple, said "Oh well, what the Hell!" and pulled the trigger. The pistol fired, and wadding from the blank cartridge shattered his skull. The special effects foreman ran onto the set and tried to open Hexum's clenched jaw to get much-needed air into his lungs. He applied a towel to the actor's head wound. The actor was placed onto an emergency wood stretcher, loaded into a studio station wagon, and rushed through the studio gate and across the street to Century City Hospital's Emergency Room. Jon-Erik Hexum was declared brain-dead on October 18, 1984. He was removed from life support, and his organs were harvested for transplant. The film crew never recovered from the loss of their friend and "star". See more »

Don't Hold Your Breathe Bonnie.
16 April 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I certainly don't have fond memories of this series.

It was pretty cheesey back in 1985 when I first saw it. Jennifer O'Neal was as wooden in it as she was in most of her other roles, Including 'Scanners', but only Michael Ironside was really good in that movie.

This seemed to be a cross between Charlie's Angels and Remmington Steele, but wasn't as watchable as either series. It's also infamous and memorable to some, because one of it's stars Jon Erik Hexum, was playing around with a prop pistol loaded with blanks, put it to his head, and fired. Without knowing that blanks can actually kill because there is still a discharge from the weapon when fired.
