Those who were fans of the 1990s police drama New York Undercover will remember the series being just as popular for its sense of style and cultural influence as it was for its story lines. While wondering if Detectives Williams and Torres would solve their case each week, the equally urgent question was who the new love interest or musical guests would be. The series leads were not only clever detectives able to navigate the gritty streets of New York, but like all the best cop characters, they were also the kind of guys you wouldn't mind having a drink or watching the game with. This is the same flavor that writer-director Reggie "Rock" Bythewood brings to Gun Hill, which he describes as a distant cousin to the series he wrote and produced until 1997.
