Trivia

In November 1981, Wagner and Powers each lost their significant others: actors Natalie Wood and William Holden, respectively.
The dog who portrayed Freeway, was found in an animal shelter and was named "Charlie Gray". On the set, he was especially close to Stefanie Powers. His offspring would portray "Junior" in the later Hart movies.
The last Hart to Hart movie aired on Aug 25, 1996, exactly seventeen years, to the date, of the airing of the pilot.
Actresses considered for the role of Jennifer Hart included Suzanne Pleshette and Lindsay Wagner.
The Harts' dog, Freeway, was so named because he was found by the side of a freeway.
The Hart's ranch-style house originally belonged to Dick Powell, an old friend of Wagner's, and was situated in Mandeville Canyon, Los Angeles, California.
The Harts' dog, Freeway, was a Lowchen breed.
The last name of the character Max (played by Lionel Stander) is never mentioned throughout the show.
The initial choice for the role of Jonathan Hart was Cary Grant. However, Grant (who was seventy-five years old at the time) had effectively retired from acting several years earlier.
The exterior shots of the Hart's lavish ranch style house was used as the exterior of Lora Meredith's house in Imitation of Life (1959).

On November 29 1981, when Hart to Hart was still on the air, Natalie Wood, husband Robert Wagner and friend Christopher Walken took a late night boat ride, during which Wood drowned in the Pacific Ocean. The death was originally ruled an accident, but now the investigation has been re-opened.
Sidney Sheldon had originally written a script for CBS called "Double Twist", about a married couple who were also both spies. Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg decided to update the idea for a potential television series. They asked Tom Mankiewicz to update the script, to make it more contemporary, and viable for a potential weekly series. Mankiewicz re-worked Sheldon's original script, and it was renamed "Hart To Hart". Mankiewicz also made his directorial debut with the pilot episode as planned, and remained a "Creative Consultant" on the series.
