Trivia
Prior to the show's premiere and immediately afterward there was enormous controversy over what was perceived to be high levels of offensive language and nudity. Many affiliates refused to air the show and several advertisers boycotted it. Steven Bochco negotiated intensely with the network for a certain amount of language and nudity to be allowed. He has said that because of the pressure on the network from this criticism the show would likely not have survived had it not been an instant hit.

According to Steven Bochco, Sherry Stringfield asked the producers to release her from her contract after the first season because she said she was not enjoying being a TV actress and wanted to return to New York. Less than a week after being let out of the contract she was hired as a regular cast member for the new TV series ER (1994). However, in his book "True Blue", David Milch said that Sherry's contract-end request came about because she had very little to do - the prominence of Andy Sipowicz's relationship with Sharon Lawrence's DA took all of the story time that was originally intended for scenes between David Caruso and Sherry - and the request was amiably granted, with Milch also stating he was happy when she got a prominent role on ER.
