In this -far less successful, hence shorter-lived- Baywatch spin-off, Mitch Buchannon, the reliable lieutenant in charge of an LA county beach's lifeguards, moonlights -often literally, at night, hence the title- as a private detective, who investigates and solves various crimes, often in some way related to his beloved beach and/or the ocean (e.g. as smuggle route, hiding place, dumping site), sometimes aided by several other characters which vary in the series, including young lifeguard Griff Walker.

Some call 'Baywatch' the single worst series in TV history. I disagree.
The series was about much more than just silicone T and A, it was about... Well OK, that is what the show was all about.
'Baywatch Nights' IS the WORST series in TV history! The mere concept of this premise is insane. NO ONE watched 'Baywatch' for the story lines, compelling characters, and certainly not the acting. We watched it for the silicone! 'Baywatch Nights' revolves around Mitch Buchannon (David Hasselhoff) and Garner the token black cop who appeared on 'Baywatch' every once and a while starting their own private detective agency. What's next? 'Al Bundy MD?' 'Tour of Duty' joins the peace movement? Or Superman develops a fear of flying? They're joined by Mark Harmon's sister Angie, best known as the voice of Darth Vader in 'Star Wars,' and finally an over the hill dumb blonde. No... not the good type of dumb blondes we're used to from 'Baywatch,' the bad type of dumb blondes whom aren't sexy.
Since the detectives work at night that means on swimming at the beach. Which means no swim suits, which means no dumb blonde life guards' silicone bouncing along the beach in swim suits! So why did anyone expect this series to be popular? What 'Baywatch Nights' did have was really bad story lines and even worse acting. No, the mysteries weren't interesting in any way shape or form.
The show could have worked if the silicone blondes from 'Baywatch' solved crimes during the day still in their swim uniforms.
Actually the show could have worked if the silicone blondes from 'Baywatch' mowed lawns still in their swim uniforms.
