High Incident was a police drama series produced by DreamWorks Television for the ABC network that ran from 1996 to 1997. The show was created by Steven Spielberg, Michael Pavone, Eric Bogosian and Dave Alan Johnson and focused on the everyday lives of patrol officers in the fictional Southern California city of El Camino.
The following weapons were used in the television series High Incident:
Taurus PT99 AFS
A Taurus PT99 AFS is carried by Officer Randy Willitz (Cole Hauser).
The Beretta 92FS was the primary sidearm of several El Camino Police Department officers including Officer Lenny Gayer (Matt Craven).
Colt Python (Nickel)
Senior Lead Officer Jim Marsh (David Keith) carried a Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver with a nickel finish as his duty weapon. In the Pilot episode, Marsh points his sidearm at the chest of a violently resisting felon and cocks the hammer.
Senior Lead Officer Michael Rhoades (Blair Underwood) carries a Colt Python .357 magnum revolver with a six inch barrel as his duty weapon. In "Shootout" (S2E22), Rhoades draws the Colt and fires on heavily armed bank robbers.
Heckler & Koch USP
The Heckler & Koch USP first begins to appear on the show in Season 2, replacing the Beretta 92FS as the sidearm for many of the ECPD officers, including Officer Jessica Helgado (Lisa Vidal) and Officer Russell Topps (Louis Mustillo). The USP had only been introduced in 1993; along with seaQuest DSV and Season 2 of JAG, High Incident was one of the first TV series to feature this pistol.
In "Shootout" (S2E22), the Remington 870 shotgun is used during the bank holdup.
In "Shootout" (S2E22), a Mossberg 500 shotgun is seen instead of the Remington 870.
Winchester Model 70
What appears to be a Winchester Model 70 is used by Marsh in "Shootout" (S2E22).
AKM assault rifles are used prominently by the two bank robbers in "Shootout" (S2E22). They are described by Officer Willitz (somewhat inaccurately) as “AK-47s” and are said to have a range of one mile.
TRIVIA: "Shootout" was the final episode of the show before its cancellation. This episode was inspired by the North Hollywood shootout, which had taken place only a few months before the episode aired.
High Incident first aired on March 4, 1996, running a total of 32 episodes. Although it received good reviews and fair ratings, the show was often shuffled between time slots. It was cancelled after the end of its second season in May 1997, due to its lower ratings against NBC's Friends on Thursday evenings.
