Quote: Created by award-winning writers/ producers Steven Bochco and Michael Kozoll, the critically acclaimed television series
Hill Street Bluesbecame one of the most seminal drama series by virtue of its powerful writing, gritty realism, emotionally charged storylines and incredible ensemble cast, including Daniel J. Travanti, Veronica Hamel, Bruce Weitz and Betty Thomas, among other notables. Throughout its seven year run on network television (1981-1987),
Hill Street Bluestook viewers inside the heart of a racially torn, crime-ridden precinct of an urban metropolis. Each episode charts a day in the life on 'The Hill,' balancing the characters' personal lives with their professional ones. 'Let's be careful out there,' advises Sgt. Esterhaus every morning at roll call, before sending out his officers and detectives to patrol their city's streets, where the peace is kept thanks to a tenuous trust between the police and the people they protect. Yet as dangerous as their precinct is, the men and women of Hill Street often find that their biggest battles involve protecting themselves from the Public Defender's office, self-serving bureaucrats ... and each other.
