After a serial killer imitates the plots of his novels, successful mystery novelist Richard "Rick" Castle gets permission from the Mayor of New York City to tag along with an NYPD homicide investigation team for research purposes.
Nash is a smart-alecky police inspector (Don Johnson) who's seen fighting crime on the streets of San Francisco, while driving around in his screaming yellow 70ish Plymouth Hemi Barracuda. He's the typical super-cop on the beat, who always wins in the end. Unfortunately, his personal relationships leave much to be desired. He has two ex-wives, a 16-year-old daughter needing a lot of supervision, and a father with Alzheimer's disease who keeps getting kicked out of retirement homes and dropping by to visit. Written by

In the series finale on 5/4/01 "Fair Game", CBS announced the show as the season finale but due to budget problems with the show, DJ and CBS pulled the plug on the series. See more »
Although Nash Bridges' car is referred to as a 1971 Plymouth Barracuda (the grille/headlamp, mirrors, and tail light configuration is that of a 1971 Plymouth Barracuda.) The actual cars used were 5 Total, (4) 1970 Plymouth Barracudas and (1) 1973 Coupe (used as FX Car)converted to look like 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertibles. None actually had a Hemi motor, but rather 318-440 motors. 1 stick and 4 automatics. See more »

One of my favourite shows on television,I enjoy it immensely. Don Johnson is at his best,and in his element,in this type of show.His back up in the series,Harvey,Evan and Joe are very likeable as well.And the little side stories with Joe usually getting himself into all manner of situations provide some welcome light relief to the episodes.A shame really that here(in the UK)the channels do not deem it worthy of an earlier time slot,the episode I just watched started at 12.35am,a little late perhaps for a work night,but all in all,an excellent show.
