21 Jump Street debuted on FOX in April 1987 and ran until April 1991. Created by Stephen J. Cannell and Patrick Hasburghm, the TV show is noted for propelling Johnny Depp to teen idol status (much to his chagrin) and for being one of the first hits for the new network.
Each episode of 21 Jump Street revolves around a team of fresh-faced young cops who go undercover in high schools and colleges to intercede with troubled youths. Show themes include AIDS, sexual promiscuity, hate crimes, alcohol, drugs, and child abuse. Series regulars include Depp, Holly Robinson, Peter DeLuise, Richard Grieco, Sal Jenco, Dustin Nguyen, Steven Williams and Michael Bendetti.
FOX cancelled the series after four seasons but it continued in syndication for year five. Depp and Nguyen didn’t make the jump.
The complete series has been released on DVD and features all 103 action-packed episodes on 18 discs. Guest stars include Brad Pitt, Vince Vaughn, Jason Priestley, Josh Brolin, Christina Applegate, Bridget Fonda, Dom Deluise, Rosie Perez, John Waters, Shannen Doherty, Thomas Haden Church, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
