Wiseguy is an American crime drama series that aired on CBS from September 16, 1987 to December 8, 1990 for a total of four seasons. Starring Ken Wahl, the series was produced by Stephen J. Cannell and was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia to avoid the higher studio costs associated with filming in Los Angeles.
The series followed Vincent "Vinnie" Terranova, an undercover agent of the OCB (Organized Crime Bureau), a fictional division of the FBI. The show differed from previous crime dramas in its use of "story arcs" and in its focusing as much on the sometimes unpleasant consequences of the protagonist's actions as on the mechanics of the detective work.
