  • Detective Sergeant Rick Hunter and his partner, Sergeant Dee Dee McCall, are homicide investigators with the Los Angeles Police Department. Often they must go undercover to catch a variety of L.A.-style villains. "Sporty" James, a helpful police-informant, occasionally provides a bit of humor in this action-drama T.V. series.

  • L.A.P.D. Sgt. Rick Hunter (Dryer) is a tough-minded, Dirty Harry-type policeman who can't stand the creeps, thieves, rapists, and especially murderers who prowl the streets of Los Angeles. Unfortunately his method of doing things doesn't sit well with his precinct captains, which lead to their efforts to get rid of him. Because of his heavy-handed approach, he is unable to keep partners for any significant time frame, and is assigned to Sgt. Dee Dee 'The Brass Cupcake' McCall (Kramer). Through 8 years on TV, the two homicide detectives found themselves up against the slimiest criminals Los Angeles has to offer...

  • Rick Hunter is a (good) cop, who has a few things going against him. One is the fact that he, albeit unintentionally, injures his partners, which that not too many cops want to be his partner. Another is that his captain has it in for him. And the fact, that some of the people in his family are mobsters. Hunter teams up with Dee Dee McCall, another cop, whom the other cops don't like. But nevertheless, they prove to be quite a formidable duo. As stated Hunter's captains during the first season had it in for him, but during the second season, Hunter's new Captain, Wyler did not have a grudge against Hunter but liked to do things by the book which Hunter sometimes didn't do. And during the third season, his new Captain, Charles Devane got along well with Hunter and McCall. After six seasons, Stepfanie Kramer left the show. During the seventh season, Hunter and Devane were transfered to the Metro Division and were joined by Joanne Molenski. Eventually Darlanne Fluegel who played Molenski left and was replaced by Chris Novack.

  • 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.
