A pair of plainclothes homicide detectives, Lieutenant Mike Stone and Inspector Steve Keller, cruise the streets of San Francisco, California solving a variety of crimes, usually involving murder. Stone is the street-smart twenty-year veteran cop, and Keller is the college-educated rookie. Much of the series' success was due to the friendly by-play and relationship between the two leads.Written by

The young version of Hank Pymm in Avengers: Endgame (2019) was based on Michael Douglas' look when he was starring in this show. The scene showing him running down the hallway, away from the camera was a virtual copy of a number of shots of him running in Streets of San Francisco, right down to the length of his hair and the type of coat he was wearing.

End credits (from seasons 2-5): Photographed Completely On Location in San Francisco. In season 1, the production was split with exteriors filmed in San Francisco and interior scenes filmed at the Burbank Studios in Burbank, California. See more »
The headline says all I think about "The Streets of San Francisco". Great scene, great screenplays, great actors, great atmosphere. Michael Douglas shouldn't have left 1976... I would have loved to see two or three more seasons with the Stone/Keller team. SIMPLY THE BEST in any way! There have been only few "great" TV crime shows during the past 30 years; I would place Streets of San Francisco on top, followed by (in no particular order) Cannon, Petrocelli, Vega$, Magnum, Miami Vice, Jack and The Fatman, and Nash Bridges. These make watching TV a real pleasure.
