Storyline

Rocky Nelson is a former New York cop, who is trying to make it as an actor in Hollywood. However, like most actor wannabees, he is still looking for his big break, and his lack of stature doesn't endear him to the directors. So, he is currently working for Beverly Hills Patrol, a private security agency that caters to the needs of the Hollywood elite and who also try to keep things quiet for their clients. And every now and then Rocky comes across a case which requires him to slip into his old mold of cop, which doesn't make his boss or the police lieutenant that he encounters, happy.

Great show!
20 November 2004 | by (Mankato, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

Only a handful of episodes were made, but man were they good! I still remember them.

A tongue-in-cheek detective show with Pesci perfect as the gumshoe. Strong supporting cast of actors who didn't take themselves too seriously and a great episode-ending plot device with Dean Martin as himself, talking to Joe. Dean didn't look so good, but it was sure nice to see him on the show after his "roasts" ended in '82. Whenever Dean was on the screen it was a lot of fun. The other supporters included Bubba Smitha and Dick Butkis, I think. The whole security firm plot landed itself to all sorts of Rockford Files type adventures and it's sad that it didn't last.

Anybody else remember this one?
