Michael Hayes starred former NYPD Blue actor David Caruso as the titular lead character, a former cop who becomes a crusading US attorney for New York’s southern district.

His background allowed Hayes to bring his unique New York street smarts into the court system, and his knowledge about the links between the political and judicial areas of his work gave him an advantage over his Ivy League colleagues.

The ratings for Hayes were far from spectacular and the show was repeatedly moved around and pulled from broadcast by CBS.

Just as the show was beginning to show some strength, CBS pulled it again in 1998 for specials and May sweeps, and the series was cancelled in June.
