First Canadian television series to air on an American television network (CBS). 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 »
While I can empathize with Canadain viewers who like seeing Canadian actors in roles, and enjoy seeing Toronto and other major Canadian cities on American television, etc., I also can't get past being bothered when a show made anywhere in Canada pretends to be from a gritty American city like New York, especially the New York underworld which would generate the most activity for criminals and work for detectives. Sorry, but Canada is just too sanitized. I had the same problem with "Police Surgeon" in the 1970s. In any event, however, the theme music and opening of "Night Heat" was terrific. I still have a sound recording and play it, even though it runs less than a minute, just because I like it!
