Storyline

Slightly offbeat television police comedy-drama. Tony Scali is the Police Commissioner in a small town, where solutions to difficult situations often require considerable creativity. Tony's easygoing manner and clever intellect are much more useful to him than weapons or brute force in his fight against crime. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Trivia

Creator Steve Kronish wanted to cast Michael Chiklis after working with him on Wiseguy (1987). But CBS rejected him because they felt Chiklis was too young for the part. Kronish took the idea to ABC, who was convinced to cast Chiklis after seeing him in the failed ABC pilot Maverick Square (1990). See more »

The Commish
20 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

This was is and will forever be my favorite series from the Nineteen Nineties. Michael Chiklis, is a absolutely stunning actor he has the skills and the looks to make it in the big time. This is a show for the whole family to to sit and enjoy, If you are lucky enough to find the whole series in one collection like I did at Newbury Comics for 10 bucks. on a scale of one to ten I give this series a 10. there is very little of anything in the way of violence and there I nothing in the form of bad language it is totally G rated in my books suitable for the whole family it is a true blast from the past for everyone to enjoy with your favorite TV time Snack and beverage,
