    Born in the same year as Denzel Washington, Dennis Haysbert made his screen debut in this television movie titled 'Code Red'. Like Denzel at the time, he was unnoticed, and you could be forgiven for thinking they are one and the same person. It's worth a watch if only to see Dennis in his first project.

    This TV-movie served as a pilot to the last series produced by Irwin Allen (Master of Disaster). The series concerned itself with the exploits of a family of firefighters headed by Lorne Greene. Of interest were a female firefighter and a Native-American arson investigator (two non-traditinal roles).

    Among members from prior Irwin Allen endeavors are Burr De Benning ("City Beneath the Sea", "Amazing Captain Nemo") and musician Richard LaSalle ("Land of the Giants", "Swiss Family Robinson", "Fire", etc.).

    The original concept of "Code Red" was based on a script by Irwin Allen called "Pumper One". The story was set in San Francisco and was based on the fire department featured in "The Towering Inferno". When Allen moved from Warner Bros. to Columbia Pictures in 1981, he had to remove all "Inferno" references. Thus, "Code Red" was born.
