Storyline

A comedy about the working lives of plainclothes detectives Red Lilywhite and Lou Knutt who work in an outer suburban police station in Sydney. Keeping the peace on the streets and always a piece of the action for themselves, Red and Lou are completely uninterested in actually solving crimes. Their relationships with criminals and other members of the general public serve only to benefit themselves. In the face of new style policing, internal affairs enquiries and corruption commissions, they are the fat blue line. Written by Paul Gerard Kennedy

Black as black can be

Michael Caton and Daniel Wyllie as the two corrupt cops Red and Lou are a complete joy. They see their role not so much as policemen but as crime managers, making sure they get their cut, keeping crime away from most of their fellow citizens and finding ways to keep their boss Pud (Roy Billing) constantly off balance.
