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.
