Background
The landmark television cop drama Hill Street Blues was produced by MTM Enterprises and aired on NBC from 1981 to 1987. Differing from other cop dramas by emphasizing the characters rather than the cases, the series received critical acclaim and won eight Emmys and one Peabody in 1981. The series starred Barbara Babcock, Taurean Blacque, Mikel Conrad, Rene Enriquez, Charles Haid, Veronica Hamel, Ed Marinaro, Kiel Martin, James B. Sikking, Joe Spano, Betty Thomas, Daniel J. Travanti, Mike Warren and Bruce Weitz. The show won a Director's Guild award for the episode "Personal Foul" in 1982 on which Naylor was Unit Production Manager.
