Behind the Scenes

This episode is directed by Nicholas Colasanto, one of three men to both act in (the first-season episode "Deathwatch") and direct for Streets. The other two are Lawrence Dobkin (guest-stars in the pilot episode, and directs three first season episodes) and Michael Douglas (directs the fourth-season episode "Spooks For Sale").
