Synopsis

Widely-heralded when announced because of the return to television of director William Friedkin, this series pilot about an elite government counter-terrorist unit -- here attempting to stem a series of global incidents designed to cripple this country's secret space-laser project -- was reported to have been shot in the style of a theatrical movie on location in various parts of the world.

"C.A.T. Squad" (the letters stand for Counter Assault Tactical) emerged as a high concept movie in which the Star Wars-type weaponry got in the way of the actors, with the team being headed by Joe Cortese. Filmed entirely in Montreal and Mexicali, Mexico (presumably its worldwide budget was drastically trimmed, as was a promised car chase that was to rival the classic one in Friedkin's "The French Connection").
