    "Street Hawk" is an American television series that aired for 13 episodes on ABC in 1985. The series is a Limekiln and Templar Production in association with Universal MCA Television. Its central characters were created by Paul M. Belous and Robert 'Bob' Wolterstorff, and its core format was developed by Bruce Lansbury, (Angela Lansbury's brother), who had initially commissioned the program's creation. The series was originally planned for the fall of 1984, Mondays at 8:00 PM Eastern/7:00 PM Central. However, ABC executives changed their minds when the summer series "Call to Glory" did well, and "Street Hawk" was pushed to mid season. "Street Hawk" made its debut on January 4, 1985 on ABC at 9:00PM Eastern/8:00PM Central and ran until May 16, 1985. Reruns aired on the USA Network on Saturdays at 10:00AM from 1990-91.

    Responsible for the art direction of the daily series' locations and/or stage sets, the art department team was expected to supervise and co-ordinate the second unit stunt filming unit as well. William Tuntke (art director), Francis "Frank" Pezza and Bob Jillson (assistant Art directors) were the initiating Universal Studios' art department design team assigned the pilot and subsequent five shows. Producer Stephan Cragg and the show's other Producers found Tuntke and Pezza failed co-ordinating the "Street Hawk" bike stunt film unit's special effects requirements. Stephan Cragg had worked with Hub Braden on the 1982 MGM-CBS TV series "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". Stephan Cragg asked Braden to take over "Street Hawk" as the show's art director. Braden was currently working at 20th Century Fox on the Glenn Larson and Harker Wade CBS-Fox series "Cover Up". Braden told Stephan Cragg that he would not make a lateral job move from one studio to another at scale, unless he would be offered more money to quit one show, moving (jumping ship) onto another studio project for more pay. Understanding the dilemma, Stephan Cragg offered Braden $300 over scale. When Braden told Harker Wade that he had been offered more pay, Harker Wade called the "Air Wolf UPM" questioning Braden's pay deal memo in order to stay with the "Cover Up" production crew. "Air Wolf" was not changing nor firing their art direction team! Harker called Braden's bluff by not meeting Braden's pay raise deal memo to remain on Fox's "Cover Up". Fox's show UPM told Braden that Harker had called Universal's "Air Wolf UPM" confirming that their staff was not changing. Hub laughed, responding in dismay, "Harker called the wrong show UPM, "Street Hawk...not...Air Wolf!"
