The police drama Hunter debuted in 1984 and was created by Frank Lupo and Stephen J. Cannell. The TV show ran for seven seasons on NBC and features exploits of L.A. homicide detectives Rick Hunter (Fred Dryer) and his partner, Dee Dee McCall (Stepfanie Kramer).
Stories feature the duo foiling plots involving deadly heists, killer porn stars, gangland murders, international terrorists, punk rockers, and more. Kramer left the show after six seasons to pursue her music career and her character married an old flame. For the final season, Hunter and Captain Devane (Charles Hallahan) move from homicide to the elite Metro unit.
The complete series has recently been released on DVD. The 28-disc set includes all 152 action-packed episodes and features guest star appearances by George Clooney, Eric Estrada, Jesse Ventura, Dennis Franz, Brian Dennehy, Ed O’Neill, Bruce Davison, Garrett Morris, Jerry Orbach, Lauren Lane, Isaac Hayes, Robert Vaughn, Sammy Davis Jr., and hundreds more.
