TV Series
    (September 28, 1991-January 11, 1996)
    Comedy-drama series
    Originally aired on ABC
    Michael Chiklis as Commissioner Tony Scali
    Theresa Saldana as Rachel Scali
    Kaj-Erik Erikson as David Scali
    John Cygan as Lieutenant Paulie Pentangeli
    Jason Schombing as Officer Ronnie Lopez
    Melinda McGraw as Cyd Madison (seasons 2-5)
    Premise: The chronicles of a upstate New York police commissioner who uses creative solutions in solving difficult crimes while balancing family life
    Chiklis portrayed a character that was ten years older than he was in real life.
    This was mostly due to Chiklis's chubby physique at the time.
    In fact, Erikson was only 16 years younger than Chiklis in real life despite portraying his son in the series.
    When Chiklis began losing weight toward later seasons, producers forced him to stuff his clothing and not shave his head to make him look like his on-screen age.
    Despite the series being set in upstate New York, it was filmed in Vancouver.
    Some characters suddenly disappeared (a la Chuck Cunningham) throughout the show's run.
    One of its co-creators was A-Team showrunner Stephen J. Cannell.
    The series dealt with a wide range of topical social issues such as police corruption, racism, homophobia, drug addiction, disabilities, child abuse, illegal immigration, and sexual harassment.
    It had a catchy theme tune composed by Mike Post.
    It is like a wittier and lighter version of 'Hill Street Blues.'
    Saldana earned a Golden Globe nomination in 1994 for her role as Rachel.
    Chiklis probably was cast as the star of 'The Shield' because of this series.
