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.
The movie originally titled "Beto" and released in 1983 under the name "Heartbreaker" is a romantic teen drama set in East
Los Angeles about low-rider gangs and the budding romance between Beto (Fernando Allende) and Kim (Dawn Dunlap). The film
was directed by Frank Zuniga and produced by Chris Nebe, and Chris Anders of Monarex Productions. The line (associate) producer
for the film was Cal Naylor.
