In addition to David Hasselhoff, the series featured actors such as Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth, Nicole Egger, David Charvet and Carmen Electra. The series was shot in Los Angeles and the surrounding area, and lasted 11 seasons, until 2001.

In addition to his action and drama scenes, alert to Malibu was also known for his swimming and swimming scenes in a swimsuit, which helped make it a cultural phenomenon. The series also launched the career of several actors and actresses, and was parodied in several television and films shows.

Cancelled by NBC after its first season, the show was revived in syndication. The syndicated version was, at its height, one of the most popular shows in the world and was syndicated in 148 countries

After eleven years in syndication, the show was canceled for the second and final time (its first cancellation was in 1990 when the show was on NBC) in 2001 because of low ratings and decreasing viewer interest.

At one point this series was being aired on every continent on the planet except Antarctica.

Following its California run, the show was going to be relocated to Australia. However, after a severe backlash from Australians, the show moved to Hawaii.

Longest running show to never win an Emmy. (as of 2005)

Both Mitch and Court were former Navy SEALs.

Following cancellation by NBC in the United States, the British broadcaster LWT (now part of ITV plc) stepped in to help save the program. At that time it had aided the ITV network (of which LWT was part) to regain the ratings war from the BBC in its time slot.

The characters "Newmie" and "Barnett" are both real life guards. They were originally hired by the production staff as technical advisers, but were bumped to reoccurring roles by the 2nd season.
