Hill Street Blues

Hill Street Blues is a combination of drama and comedy. Set in the ghetto area of a large, unnamed East Coast US city. Each episode is a day in the life of the precinct from early morning roll-call to a late-night rehash of the day’s events, usually by Captain Frank Furillo, head of the unit, and Joyce Davenport, his secret lover and later wife.

    The exterior shots of the "Hill Street" station were those of an actual Chicago police station. Now no longer used by the city, it was at one time the home of the 7th District, located near the old Maxwell Street Market, and is now called "The Hill Street Blues Station". It is now used by the University of Illinois-Chicago police. During Prohibition, this precinct had a reputation as the most corrupt in the US. Its captain once distributed his personnel roster to the Mafia bagmen who delivered the weekly payoffs, because they were handing out money to every cop in the place indiscriminately, and cops from other stations were showing up on payoff day.
