The Show

This episode is a partial remake of a Dan August episode that Rick Husky wrote, "Trackdown". Some of the same character names are used (Stephanie Patton, Dale Hunter, Officer Terry Stafford), while others are altered slightly (Aubrey Burnett in the Dan August episode becomes Don Burnett, Chris Stafford becomes Linda Stafford and Eddie Downs becomes Eddie Downing). Husky added the element of Hooker's visiting kids to the mix to tweak it.
