This first ever Canada-Mexico co-production starred Canadian performers Rob Stewart as Nick Slaughter, a former Mountie and DEA agent who was now a low-rent detective, and Carolyn Dunn, his business partner named Sylvie Girard. Set in fictional Key Mariah, the action/comedy series also starred John David Bland as Slaughter’s sidekick Ian Stewart, a former rock star and local beach bar operator, who contributed to the chaos each week.
