A drama about the working relationship between Assistant DA Tess Kaufman, a prosecutor sensitive to the rights of the accused, and hard-charging, gruff Detective Dicky Cobb, an old-fashioned cop with a "bust-the-perps" attitude.

Chicago police detective Dicky Cobb turns in some crooked cops and finds himself persona non grata in the department. He is reassigned as an investigator for assistant D.A. Tess Kaufman, partly due to the fact that she is deaf and he can sign. Tess works for District Attorney Arthur Gold, a slick opportunist. Dicky investigates her cases, with the frequent help of Detective Earl Gaddis, a chain-smoking cop who is the only one on the force Dicky still gets along with. Tess is assisted by her faithful translator, Ben Douglass. Her ex-husband, Bruce Kaufman, continues to make life unhappy for her by involving her in his insensitive schemes. Dicky is romantically involved first with Kay Lockman, a cop's daughter who runs a bar, and later with defense attorney Maggie Zombro, with whom he often conflicts in court. Written by

TV Series starting in 1991: filmed partly in Chicago
I was an extra in the pilot, shot in Chicago, and had the enjoyment of working with Marlee Matlin and Mark Harmon. Mr. Harmon was very personable and professional, and even took the time to eat dinner and chat with us extras. I literally, bumped into Ms. Matlin during one of our takes, when she turned and walked into me as I crossed a hallway in a scene where I walk across the room from viewers' right to left. I would like to add that I walked very professionally, almost like I had been doing it... all of my life! I was sorry when the program was canceled, as I thought it was very well done. Chicago has some of the best architecture available to the television and movie industry today. The interiors and exteriors are without equal. Sincerely, Dave Quinn McHenry, IL
