Beverley Hills Buntz is an American detective drama/sitcom created by David Milch and Jeffrey Lewis for NBC as a spin-off of Hill Street Blues, which was canceled the same year Buntz started. It ran from November 05, 1987 to April 22, 1988 for one season.
Dismissed from the police force depicted in Hill Street Blues, morally questionable detective Lt Buntz (Dennis Franz) travels to California, where he opens up a private detective agency alongside Sid 'The Snitch' Thurston (Peter Jurasik).
Beverly Hills Buntz was spun out of Hill Street Blues. One episode featured a guest appearance by George Wyner, who played his Hill Street Blues character Irwin Bernstein.
