TV Shows - Commish, The
The Commish was a television series that aired on ABC in the United States from 1991 to 1996. It also screened on KTN (Kenya Television Network) in Kenya, Nelonen in Finland, NRK in Norway and the Nine Network in Australia, TV3 in Spain. It is still broadcast on SBS Net in Denmark and La7 in Italy.
The series starred Michael Chiklis as Tony Scali, a police commissioner in a small Upstate New York town who worked through problems with humor and creativity more often than with violence or force. Theresa Saldana played Rachel Scali, Tony's wife, and Kaj-Erik Eriksen played their teen-aged son David. Also living with the family in the first season was Rachel's freeloading brother Arnie Metzger (David Paymer). A daughter, Sarah, played by twins Justine and Dayna Cornborough, was born to Tony and Rachel in the second season.
The show focused as much on family situations as on police drama. Each episode ran at 60 minutes on air, and the show lasted five years. The series often dealt with a wide range of topical social issues such as racism, homophobia, drug addiction, disabilities, child abuse, illegal immigrants, and sexual harassment.
