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 pilot script said the show took place in an unnamed Midwestern city. Throughout the show's seven-year run, the exact name of the city was never mentioned, although there were hints as to its location. The police cars were based on those of the Chicago Police Dept., while the officers' uniforms were based on that of the New York City Police Dept. Neither city has a precinct known as "The Hill", although Pittsburgh, PA (where series creator Steven Bochco attended Carnegie Institute of Technology, now known as Carnegie Mellon University) does). In addition, the City Hall shown in the series is actually that of Philadelphia, PA.

    Contrary to popular belief, it was Renko alone who was supposed to have died in the shootout in the pilot while his partner Hill survives. Charles Haid was originally a guest star in the pilot as a favor for series creator Steven Bochco. After he shot the "Hill Street" pilot, he shot one for a proposed NBC hospital dramatic series, but it wasn't picked up by the network. He then asked Bochco if Renko could be resurrected and made into a regular in the series.

    Goof (revealing mistake): During the opening credits when the police cars pull out of the garage, one of them has the overhead light bar on backwards. You can see that the others have the siren speakers between the lights facing front, while one has it facing to the trunk.
