Storyline

This two-hour episode, actually Parts 1 and 2 of three (in the NBC reruns, they were shown as two 90-minute episodes; in syndication, they are three one-hour episodes), is a close retelling of the Son of Sam case, with Albert Colvin (James Stephens) as a serial killer who hunts down and shoots beautiful women while taunting reporters by phone. This and other Eischied episodes makes extensive use of location filming in New York, a rarity for television series of the time. Written by Peter Harris

Trivia

The movie "To Kill a Cop" was not planned as a series, and only became one at the last minute. TV Guide reported that NBC programming chief walked out of a screening of a pilot called "Two Guys From Muck" (developed by Brandon Tartikoff) before the show ended and expressed colorful displeasure with that show and others on the 1979 NBC fall schedule, forcing Tartikoff to spend three days in negotiations with To Kill a Cop producer David Gerber to develop a series around the lead character.
