TV show description:
Police detectives Christopher Lorenzo (Rob Estes) and Rita Lee Lance (Mitzi Kapture) solve sexually-based crimes of passion in Palm Beach, Florida.
The two share on-again off-again flirtations and nickname each other “Sam” after their mutually favorite golfer, Sam Snead. The duo initially work under Captain “Hutch” Hutchinson (Ben Vereen) and later, Captain Harry Lipschitz (Charlie Brill).
Later in the series, Rita and Chris consummate their relationship, she becomes pregnant, and the two soon marry. Shortly thereafter, Chris is fatally shot and Rita leaves the force as a result of his death.
Detectives Michael Price (Nick Kokotakis) and Tyler Layton (Holly Rawlins) briefly take their place. They are then replaced by detectives Tom Ryan (Chris Potter) and Cassandra St. John (Janet Gunn) who had previously divorced each another.
