Back then.
Like many people born before the seventies (in my case well before), I would always set aside time, to watch the incredible "Hill Street Blues". The words "Armed Robbery in progress -See Surplus Store - Corner of people's drive and 124th street" meant we were in for 50 minutes of intense entertainment. The Hill Street Blues Theme, adding to the excitement. 

 

It was entertainment like none of us here in the UK (and probably the world), had ever seen before and although it probably did not register at the time, entertainment that would change television for ever. If you have forgotten just what was so special about it, download this short clip (featuring Joyce and Fay) and remind yourself.

 

Guests and Performers

When you look down the list of the cast, semi regulars and guests, it is imposable not to be surprised at how well most have done. With a few expectations they were unknowns when the joined the hill, but have gone on to build lives in the industry and not always in acting.

 

The brilliant team of writers have since produced some of finest television series and films of the last twenty years. For example, do you know that Miami Vice was originally conceived with Hill and Renko as its main characters and that the name 'Sonny Crockett' was first used on Hill Street Blues?  

 

So why the website?

In 2005 I was holidaying in the USA and had the chance to go to Chicago. I knew that the famous Hill Street Precinct House was there, having been involved in an internet petition to save it some years earlier. However to my amazement, I was unable to find any worthwhile information about the building on the internet.

 

What was more incredible was that I found virtually no good 'Hill Street Blues' only, 'dedicated' websites. What little there was, seemed to have been neglected for years and the name Hill Street Blues - Net and Org, had never even been registered. The Hill Street Blues Cast seemed to have faired a little better, with numerous cast list available.

 

I have produced a few websites in my time (see My home site for examples if you want), but decided that this is one that 'has to be done'. So in October 2005 I started on the Hill Street Blues TV Program Website. Late in 2006 Fox also (at last) produced one, but during 2008 it disappeared again and they seem to have no interest in this 'historical gem' they own.

 

Spoiler Warning: Clearly you will read here information about plots and characters, that may spoil enjoyment of episode you have not yet seen.

 

Can you help?
If you have any good Pictures, Information, or Memories that need a virtual home, please share them with us. Where you involved in the series making? Where you there when Barbara Babcock opened her coat? Or perhaps you were just an enthusiast? Did you think "What would Frank do now", when you had to make an important decision in your life? If so please write in the Egro
up or direct to me.

 

Also if you have a website, you can help by giving us a link back to http://www.hillstreetblues.tv (it all helps with our search engine rating). 

 

Lastly at this moment some of the images used on this site, have been found on the internet. If you feel that any infringe copyright, please tell me and they will be removed.

 

 

If you are a 'perp'  the only thing scarier

than having 'a Belker' rip your lungs out,

is to have two Belkers do it!
