The majority of the series was filmed at night, encompassing about 800 days of nighttime shooting. Scott Hylands recalls being glad when his character was not the central figure of certain episodes because this allowed him to sleep more. See more »
Although set in the United States many scenes were shot on Yonge Street in Toronto and many landmarks such as Sam the Record Man store and newspaper boxes selling the Toronto Star can be seen. See more »
Night Heat was an awesome police TV drama show. I liked the actors and they were well casted for their roles. Thats true that Jeff Wincott did not get much better roles as I thought he might get at the time. I was sure he will. Instead, this series started off well for other people and other shows.. such as several Law & Order series and NYPD. Night Heat was the pioneer of more realistic drama police show than others prior or during Night Heat.
Clarke Johnson was the actor from the series went on to another realistic police drama Homicide TV Series.
Yes, I agree that the series was filmed in Toronto since I recoginized so many places in this wonderful city near my birthtown in Upstate NY. This series brought more closer to home than Law & Order since the background and lifestyle was close to my hometown (Appx. 4 hours drive).
I would love to see reunion shows but I was disappointed not seeing the series in closed captioned for hearing impaired.
The series was on at the right time since I was busy in evenings and I was settled into bed watching the series.
This series really showed alot of hard work to make it successful made by the Canadians and I really liked their style of programming. Sadly, I dont see much of our neighbor's shows in the states. It would be nice to have their network aired in the states!
One drawback I didnt like that they had repeating guest stars playing roles of villians or victims. Perhaps there was a reason for this that I do not know.
Overall, the series was a 5 star out of 5. Why? It showed at different time (night time) of the detectives. That is original!
