Synopsis by Hal Erickson
From the same team responsible for the Australian magazine show spoof Frontline, Funky Squad was a screamingly funny send-up of such 1960s and 1970s youth-oriented cop shows as The Mod Squad and Starsky and Hutch. The series' seven half-hour episodes chronicled the adventures of a group of hip young police officers, all of whom were decked out with garish outfits, big hair and oh-so-cool dialogue. In keeping with the satirical spirit of the series, the actor/writers playing Funky Squad members Grant, Cassie, Stix, and Poncho were billed under fictional real names rather than their own names. Thus, Tim Ferguson was credited onscreen as Blair Steele, Jane Kennedy, was known as Verity Svenson-Hart, Santo Cilauro was identified as Joey Alvarez, and so on. Funky Squad was seen over Australia's ABC network from April 24 to June 5, 1995.
