21 Jump Street is about a group of under-age looking cops who go undercover at high schools to catch young criminals before they become older, more dangerous criminals. In later seasons, the team went less and less undercover on high schools, and the plots focused more on the cops' personal lives.

[show]After the second season, a spin-off was planned titled "City Court". The intention was to follow the Jump Street cases through the court system. A two-hour pilot was planned in which Tom Hanson is put on trial for murder. But because of the 1988 writer's strike, the series was never produced. The storyline featuring Hanson's murder trial was later used for the third season finale.
- The show was based on a real life undercover unit in Los Angeles, CA.
- Johnny Depp often wore a tube sock in his pants as a joke during the filming of this show.
