From legendary creator/writer Steven Bochco, the multi award-winning Hill Street Blues is the original pioneering ' TV cop show', that blazed the trail for later ensemble hits such as NYPD Blue and L.A. Law. One of the most innovative and critically acclaimed series of its time, this is the story of an overworked, under-staffed police precinct in an anonymous inner city patterned after Chicago.

'Let's be careful out there.' So ends each roll-call session at the Hill Street station house. As the cops and detectives head out onto the streets, Captain Frank Furillo juggles the delicate balancing act of providing enough protection for the law-abiding citizens without inciting the neighbourhood gangs and local criminal elements who are openly hostile towards any police presence. Yet as dangerous as his inner city precinct can be, Furillo's biggest battles often involve protecting his own cops from the Public Defender's office, self-serving bureaucrats, and even each other.

Breathtakingly fast paced, mature, tough, brutal and uncompromising, Hill Street Blues is a triumph of intelligence and substance. It is quite simply, the most groundbreaking show in recent memory and is essential viewing for all lovers of quality entertainment.
