Bluey is an Australian television series made by Crawford Productions for the Seven Network in 1976.
The series was another police drama from Crawford Productions, but was different from their previous series - Homicide, Division 4 and Matlock Police - in that it focused on a single detective rather than an ensemble, and that the characters were not stock standard archetypes usually seen in police dramas. Stand-up comedian Lucky Grills was cast as the titular Det. Sgt. "Bluey" Hills who, in contrast to the relatively straight detectives seen in Crawford's previous shows, was obese, drank heavily, smoked heavily, visited local prostitutes, and would often enact physical violence to criminals.
