"[A] 1980s update on 1960s show THE MOD SQUAD....It launched the career of Johnny Depp..."
Created by legendary television producer Stephen J. Cannell (THE A-TEAM, HUNTER), 21 JUMP STREET took a MOD SQUAD-like premise and used it to explore complex issues that faced teenagers and young adults. A group of young police officers are chosen to join a specialized team to go undercover in high schools and colleges. Their goal is to stop criminals early in their careers, before they're entangled in a life of illegality. With a cast headed by Johnny Depp, 21 JUMP STREET never shied away from presenting storylines with controversial topics, although never in an exploitative way. THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON collects 20 episodes of the series, and introduces the character of Dennis Booker (Richard Grieco). Guest stars include famous faces like Bridget Fonda, Larenz Tate, Mario Van Peebles, and many more.
