Trivia

The name of Robert Loggia's character, FBI agent Nick Mancuso, is also the name of the real life actor, best known for his title role in the NBC TV series Stingray (1985). This initially caused Nick Mancuso to protest the title character's name to his former network, without success. However, Nick Mancuso later learned that the name choice and character were partially inspired by his work on Stingray with Stephen J. Cannell. Through this connection Robert Loggia and Nick Mancuso became mutual admirers of each other's work and went on to work together in Wild Palms, Real Gangsters, and The Big Fat Stone. See more »

The Best of Loggia
23 July 2006 | by rlquallSee all my reviews

Robert Loggia was at his best in this tale of a maverick FBI agent. Old and set in his ways, he was much more interested in seeing justice done than he was in meeting all of the Bureau's latest paperwork requirements or in playing the political games that were expected, especially of Special Agents assigned so close to the Bureau's Washington, D.C. headquarters. Nick Mancuso was what you want a TV cop (and real ones, for that matter) to be, hardworking, dedicated to the truth, and very bright, with a willingness to "let the chips fall where they may". The character had been in the miniseries "Favorite Son" which was shown on NBC the fall before Mancuso, F.B.I. came on. While the show was not renewed for a second season, NBC thought enough of it to rerun what they thought were the best episodes in the summertime four years later.
