Michael (Flashdance) Nouri manages the Bluebirds, a minor league baseball team, in this series from Steven (Hill Street Blues) Bochco. Like Hill Street, this Blues has an ensemble cast and several intertwining stories, involving both the players and the team's fans, who are the blue-collar townspeople of fictional Bay City, Calif. Kelly Harmon, who plays a banker's neglected wife enjoying an affair with Nouri, is a natural for the series—she's the daughter of veteran sportscaster Tom Harmon. (Premiere)
