The premise of the program was that, as punishment for breaking the rules, Det. John Forney (Nouri) was assigned four parolees. He was supposed to help them find jobs, but they kept involving themselves in his cases. His parolees were Jesse Smith (Hargitay); Harriet Conover (Millicent Martin), convicted of land fraud; Terry Coraso (Blair Underwood), a pickpocket; and Dennis Shotoffer (Robert England) who impersonated people. Lt. Dave Kiner (David Paymer) was John’s boss on the force and Delia Bonner (Virginia Capers) was the social worker supervising his involvement with the parolees. The parolees all lived in Harriet’s rundown mansion.
