Storyline

Professional salvage divers Larry and Drake (later replaced by Mike) made their livings braving the dangers of the deep recovering sunken wrecks off the Southern California coast. Frequently, these assignments brought them into conflict with more human dangers from people who wanted to reach the wrecks first, or who had a vested interest in seeing that what had been sent to the bottom stayed there. Midway through the program's run, the divers moved their shop to Malibu, and name of the show became "Malibu Run". Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

User Reviews

Malibu Run
31 January 2002 | by McVoutySee all my reviews

Not quite a ripoff of the old Sea Hunt series, but the plot line was pretty similar: each week, a given crime could only be solved/prevented by scuba diving detectives. Keith Larsen and Jeremy Slate were younger, hipper versions of Lloyd Bridges. The show was neither great nor bad, just kind of fun. As a twelve year old at the time, I seem to remember the bikini-clad women more than anything else.
