Published

on


Crime drama series. Cases of a laid back police commissioner Tony Scali in the town of Eastbridge, New York City. Scali was a family man who’d rather eat a nice lunch than have to chase a crim (‘no one ever got hurt by a bowl of Linguini) and had a great relationship with his fellow officers.

In November and December 1995 a pair of TV Movies appeared. Michael Chiklis’s big break through role.
