Baywatch (Toyota Truck XtraCab SR5 4X4 V6 ) 1989
Baywatch is an American action drama series about the Los Angeles County Lifeguards who patrol the beaches of Los Angeles County, California, starring David Hasselhoff. The show was canceled after its first season on NBC, but survived and later became one of the most watched television shows in the world. The show ran in its original title and format from 1989 to 1999, except for the 1990–1991 season, during which it was not in production. From 1999 to 2001, with a setting change and large cast overhaul, it was known as Baywatch Hawaii.
NBC canceled the show in 1990, after its first season. It was immediately revived in syndication, where it became one of the most popular shows in the world. At its height, it aired in 148 countries, on every continent except Antarctica. After 11 years in syndication, it was canceled for the second time in 2001.
After NBC canceled the show in the United States, British broadcaster LWT (now part of ITV) stepped in to help save the program. At that time, it had helped ITV with its ratings war against the BBC.
Following its California run, the show was going to move to Australia. After a severe backlash from Australians, the show moved to Hawaii.
