Series Description

Baywatch was a 60 minute drama series that aired on NBC for the first season (and the pilot) and then ran in syndication for another eight seasons! It was about Mitch Buchannon who had years of experience as a lifeguard and the squad of young adult lifeguards that he supervised. Together, they kept their beach safe for the locals and vacationers who came to spend a day in the Sun in paradise! They didn't stop at saving potential drowning victims either. They often protected their visitors from low-lifes who preyed on them including pickpockets, kidnappers, and sexual predators. Of course, the real attraction for most Baywatch viewers were the multitude of perfect bodies covered only by tiny swimsuits. There also was no lack of romance and sexuality!
