Author has written 3 stories for Hill Street Blues.
I absolutely love Hill Street Blues for its characters. Their interactions were what made the show so good. Believable, very flawed human beings who could make you laugh and cry in an instant. Such as Daniel J. Travanti (Capt. Francis X. Furillo) has said in the past, HSB was a human interest show. It was never meant to be a formulaic cop show, but that of an unusual mix of both drama and comedy. Any vocation could be used. It just so happened that creators Steven Bochco and Michael Kozoll chose this to be about police, blowing open wide the cookie cutter and cardboard heroic antics. Every character in the 14+ sized ensemble had their own set of issues. If you thought they were near perfect? Guess again! Good stories and great writing helped this show achieve success and it had the good fortune of having 98 Emmy nominations for its seven year run.
I find the best challenge of writing HSB fan fiction is trying to keep with the show’s boundaries, and those were pretty much open to anywhere. So many avenues could be pursued. Relationships between characters? Those could be mixed around without the “shipping” element in the fan fiction world. James B. Sikking (Lt. Howard Hunter) stated in a 2002 interview he wished HSB could have gone on for twelve years. So, from his words to my mind, I’m going to carry this out and use my own imagination on how things could have happened during the ensuing years at Hill Street Station following the seventh season. Some surprises mixed with heartache and humor all the same. One thing guaranteed is everybody is there. Frank, Joyce, Phil, Neal, J.D., Bobby, Andy, Lucy, Joe, Henry, Howard, Mick, Ray, and even Fay during their respective times.
Besides, Hill Street Blues, I enjoy other shows, mostly older ones. I’m not into forensics or trial etiquette. So, you won’t see that stuff in my writing. I like a lot of ‘80s shows, but just don’t know how to write a lot of them, especially pure comedy. I like a mix.
