Series Info

Young L.A. cops go undercover in high schools in this teen-oriented police drama, which helped jump-start the new Fox network in 1987. It was the network's most-watched show that first year, and Booker became an insurance investigator who spun off to his own short-lived series. The title, incidentally, is the address of the unit's station house, a converted chapel.

Critics Consensus: 21 Jump Street sports a likable and charismatic cast, but the series is more maudlin than hip with its earnest embrace of a cheesy premise and an offensive reliance on racial stereotypes.

1987, FOX, 13 episodes
