TV EP Carlton Cuse Looks Back on "Nash Bridges"

Resume Review: "Lost" and "Bates Motel" Boss Carlton Cuse Looks Back on his Long and Unique Career
by Natalie Abrams
2/27/15




After "Brisco County, Jr.", "Nash Bridges" came next.

Basically what happened was Les Moonves had been the head of Warner Bros. Television line, and he had done "Brisco". Then he moved to CBS, and he inherited a commitment that a prior regime had made to Don Johnson to do his first series after "Miami Vice". They had tried and failed a few times.

So Les Moonves called me up and said, “Hey, would you be willing to meet with Don Johnson?” I was playing tennis with my friend Gary Ross, the director of The Hunger Games movie and Pleasantville. He was like, “You gotta go meet with Don Johnson — that’ll be a catch!



I went to meet with Don. I loved "Miami Vice", but "Miami Vice" was very dark. When I met with Don, I found him to be charming and funny, and a light bulb went off, which was I can do something with this guy while showing off his humor and his charm, which will be very different than "Miami Vice", but I can still make him a kickass cop.

It was the idea that I formulated. I went off to San Francisco and rode around with a bunch of cops for a while, then I wrote the script, turned it in and Don loved it, said he was in, then Les Moonves greenlit 14 episodes off my script, straight to series.

And that led to six seasons and 121 episodes. So that’s how it happened. [Laughs]
