Geraint Wyn Davies,
When Jessie Mach is crippled after an assault by an old enemy, his position as motorcycle cop seems finished. That was before a computer technician named Tuttle recruits him for a special government project. He is to be the test pilot for the Street Hawk, an advanced motorcycle that carried tremendous firepower and capable of speeds of over 300 MPH while in a city with little risk of collisions with Tuttle staying at the command center seeing everything Jessie through the camera in the helmet. This deal includes special surgery to repair his legs while keeping him the facade that he is still handicapped. Unfortunately for Tuttle, Jessie insists to get involved in stopping crime rather than the simple tests Tuttle wants. So now the city has the additional protection of the mysterious superhero known as Streethawk. Written by

Responsible for the art direction of the daily series' locations and/or stage sets, the art department team was expected to supervise and co-ordinate the second unit stunt filming unit as well. William Tuntke (art director), Francis "Frank" Pezza and Bob Jillson (assistant Art directors) were the initiating Universal Studios' art department design team assigned the pilot and subsequent five shows. Producer Stephan Cragg and the show's other Producers found Tuntke and Pezza failed co-ordinating the "Street Hawk" bike stunt film unit's special effects requirements. Stephan Cragg had worked with Hub Braden on the 1982 MGM-CBS TV series "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". Stephan Cragg asked Braden to take over "Street Hawk" as the show's art director. Braden was currently working at 20th Century Fox on the Glenn Larson and Harker Wade CBS-Fox series "Cover Up". Braden told Stephan Cragg that he would not make a lateral job move from one studio to another at scale, unless he would be offered more money to quit one show, moving (jumping ship) onto another studio project for more pay. Understanding the dilemma, Stephan Cragg offered Braden $300 over scale. When Braden told Harker Wade that he had been offered more pay, Harker Wade called the "Air Wolf UPM" questioning Braden's pay deal memo in order to stay with the "Cover Up" production crew. "Air Wolf" was not changing nor firing their art direction team! Harker called Braden's bluff by not meeting Braden's pay raise deal memo to remain on Fox's "Cover Up". Fox's show UPM told Braden that Harker had called Universal's "Air Wolf UPM" confirming that their staff was not changing. Hub laughed, responding in dismay, "Harker called the wrong show UPM, "Street Hawk...not...Air Wolf!" See more »
Any kid of the 80's should have had a great time with this...
For a youngster in the early-and-mid-eighties, this light-hearted piece of renegade cop force fluff was "too rad!" Rex Smith, prettier than any law enforcement officer has a right to be, had all the toys: A motorcycle that would go, like, 180 mph in traffic while firing small rockets, total video uplink to the master crime lab in his helmet, and a racing suit form-fitted to his body by immersing him in a vat of high-tech foam! Silly, but certainly no worse than, say, "Team Knight Rider."
