Burt Reynolds recommended his friend Robert Urich to producer Aaron Spelling for this show. Reynolds and Urich were both alumni of Florida State University. Although this show lasted only two seasons, Spelling remembered Urich and later cast him in Vega$ (1978), which had a longer run. See more »
As a kid growing up in the seventies, I just couldn't wait for the next episode of swat. Came on after the Bay City Rollers. I know the younger folks probably think of this show as kind of goofy or something, but I believe its better than some of the cop shows we have today. Todays shows are very much more violent and I wouldn't let children watch them. Great theme song, M-16s and a big blue van. Wow!! These guys always got their man, and the issues they handled sometimes went with the time which the show ran. Steve Forrest was great, as was the rest of the team. I have the first season DVD set and hope they produce the second season. I hope TV Land brings this series back soon.
