Killer Instinct was a police procedural created by Josh Berman for Fox television. It ran for one season.
Lt Matt Cavanaugh (Chi McBride) is in charge of San Francisco Police Department's Deviant Crimes Unit; the definition of 'deviant crimes' is unclear and decided entirely by Cavanaugh. His lead detectives are Jack Hale (Johnny Messner) and Danielle Carter (Kristin Lehman); Carter's response to the ambiguity of their unit is to try to define 'deviance', while Hale remains convinced that it is in the eye of the beholder.
- Morley cigarettes, smoked by the villainous Cancer Man in The X-Files, are also smoked by Killer Instinct's Lt Matt Cavanaugh, as well as characters in several other shows: Lois in Malcolm in the Middle, Warwick Brown in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and characters in Jake 2.0, Special Unit 2, Criminal Minds and Huff.
