Storyline

Dani Reynolds thinks that she has the perfect life, a perfect job, she's a renowned fashion photographer, and has a loving husband. But things change for her when her husband is killed. She learns that her husband wasn't the mild mannered person she thought he was. It seems that he was a government agent who works with no official government backing. She then recruits Mac Harper an ex-Green Beret to help her find out what happened to her husband. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Trivia

The pilot's filming took place during the Los Angeles summer Olympics with locations in San Pedro and in Long Beach. The freeway traffic was not congested as predicted nor as anticipated. Transportation from the 20th Century Fox City studio to the waterfront district of San Pedro was a direct flow without any problems. Studio stages provided the interior sets. After the pilot was filmed, the series filming immediately followed. Glenn Larson was in a battle with Fox Television Division over budget problems. One of the main series permanent sets was described as a fashion photographer's studio loft. Due to budget constraints, this set had become the battle's focus because of overtime construction expense, delivering the set earlier than had been planned. The morning the set was to be filmed, Glenn Larson demanded that the set be "covered up" with plants from the studio's green house. The director and the DP were told they could not film the finished set. The scene had to be staged in the jungle covering and filling the set area. The following episode filmed two weeks later, the green jungle disappeared, and the photographer's loft provided a new scenario for intrigue. See more »

Fun series with pretty girls & a male lead with star quality
4 February 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I live in England, where this series was a big hit. Fun, exciting, lots of good-looking women and the lead character played by an actor with real star quality, who could resist? Went badly downhill, though, after Jon-Erik Hexum was replaced following his death.

The impact of this show was so great, I was amazed to find that so few episodes were made - about six with the original lead, I believe. Of course, Hexum's death made it all the more memorable. He was tipped as the next big Hollywood star, and it was quite a shock. I still recall the touching manner in which his character's death was revealed on the show, so poignant when you knew that the actor really was dead. I also remember the conflicting stories surrounding his death. Was he playing Russian Roulette with a gun loaded with blanks, or did he just put the gun to his head as a joke?

I haven't seen any episodes since it was first shown; it would be interesting to see if I find it as good now as I remember it.

If you get the chance, I recommend you take a look.
