Show Summary

Danielle Reynolds, a fashion photographer and Mac Harper, a former green beret hired to be a male model worker together as outriders: People who are put in critical situations, people with no outside help to do whatever they have to do to solve a problem. Their boss, Henry Towler, an American Ambassador of sorts send them around the world to help Americans in trouble. They usually go above and beyond their specific assignment to bring the guilty parties to justice, much to Henry's dismay. Later in the series, Jack Striker, an independent outrider, is brought in as a male model to fill the void left by Mac. Bonnie Tyler's Holding Out For a Hero is the show's theme song.

  • Show would had last long if Jon Erik Hexum didn't do what he did!

    I think the show would had last a lot longer

    Had not Jon Erik Hexum put a bullet to his

    Brain and killed himself. It is just that this was

    His show to shine! As he was perfect for the part of

    CIA agent Mac Harper! Notice that he had the top

    Billing in front of veteral Jennifer O Neill.
  • Informative because of the way the series met its demise.

    I remembered this one after I saw in a list of failed show. This was a standard 80s action series with an attractive beef-cake type guy running around helping people with an attractive woman as a sidekick. Nothing really special about it... except for the way it ended: The star Jon-Erik Hexum like to fool around with guns. His co-star Jennifer O'Neill often became angry with his on set antics involving guns. Then one day on the set he was fooling around with a prop gun loaded with blanks, not realizing if you point it at your head at point blank range, it can kill you!

    From Wikipedia:

    Jon-Erik (pointing gun at his temple): "Let's see if I get myself with this one."

    According to a crew member on the set:

    "Jon smiled and pulled the trigger. There was a loud bang and a bright flash, then black smoke. Jon screamed in agony, then looked kind of amazed as he slumped back onto the bed with blood streaming from a severe head wound. It was horrible." .......................... ......... ..........

    Moral of the story - treat ALL guns with respect. Screw around with a gun and this could happen to you.moreless
