    Homicide: Life on the Street

    Homicide: Life on the Street is an American police procedural television series chronicling the work of a fictional version of the Baltimore Police Department’s Homicide Unit. It ran for seven seasons on NBC from 1993 to 1999, and was succeeded by a TV movie, which also acted as the de facto series finale. The series was originally based on David Simon’s book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets. Many of the characters and stories used throughout the show were based on events depicted in the book, which was also part of the basis for Simon’s own series, The Wire on HBO.

    Although Homicide featured an ensemble cast, Andre Braugher emerged as the series’ breakout star through his portrayal of Frank Pembleton. The show won Television Critics Association Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Drama in 1996, 1997, and 1998. It also became the first drama ever to win three Peabody Awards for best drama in 1993, 1995, and 1997. In 1997, the episode “Prison Riot” was ranked No. 32 on TV Guide’s 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time. In 2007, it was listed as one of Time magazine’s “Best TV Shows of All-TIME.” In 1996 TV Guide named the series ‘The Best Show You’re Not Watching’. The show placed #46 on Entertainment Weekly’s “New TV Classics” list.

    New York Undercover

    New York Undercover

    New York Undercover is an American police drama that aired on the Fox television network from 1994 to 1998. The series stars Malik Yoba as Detective J.C. Williams and Michael DeLorenzo as Detective Eddie Torres, two undercover detectives in New York City’s Fourth Precinct who were assigned to investigate various crimes and gang-related cases. The cast also included Patti D’Arbanville-Quinn as their superior, Lt. Virginia Cooper, and Lauren Vélez, who joined the cast in the second season as Nina Moreno, fellow detective and love interest to Torres. New York Undercover was created and produced by Dick Wolf, and its storyline takes place in the same fictional universe as Wolf’s NBC series Law & Order and its spin-offs.

    New York Undercover is notable for being the first police drama on American television to feature two people of color in the starring roles. In contrast to the popularity of NBC’s “Must See TV” on Thursday nights in the 1990s, many African-American viewers flocked to Fox’s Thursday night line-up of Living Single, New York Undercover, and Martin. In fact, these were the three highest rated series among black households for the 1996-1997 season.

    Dalziel and Pascoe

    Dalziel and Pascoe is a popular British television crime drama based on the novels of the same name, written by Reginald Hill. The series was first broadcast on 18 March 1996, with Warren Clarke being cast as Dalziel and Colin Buchanan being cast as Pascoe. The series is primarily set in Yorkshire, and “follows the work of two detectives that are thrown together as partners. Complete opposites. Different backgrounds, different beliefs, different styles. They get on each other’s nerves. They are embarrassed by each other everyday. But their differences make them a stunningly brilliant crime-solving team.” The first three series were entirely based on Hill’s novels, as were the first two episodes of series four. However, all subsequent stories, with exception to “Dialogues of the Dead”, are stories written exclusively for television, and have not appeared as subsequent novels. The series was produced by BBC Birmingham, and broadcast on BBC One until 22 June 2007, running for a total of twelve series.
