David Hasselhoff appeared in the most episodes totalling including the pilot , followed by Jeremy Jackson , Michael Newman , and Pamela Anderson Following the Hawaii retool, many of the series longtime cast members left the show.

Following the 10th season, Hasselhoff and Newman both left the series, leaving Bergin and Owens the only remnants of the show's original "L.

Baywatch debuted on NBC in , but was cancelled after only one season, [5] when it placed 73rd out of shows in the seasonal ratings, and also because the production studio, GTG, a joint venture of television station owner Gannett Company , later spun off into Tegna , and Grant Tinker , which was established only to produce the newsmagazine based on Gannett's newspaper USA Today went out of business.

Feeling the series still had potential, David Hasselhoff, one of the principal actors, along with creators and executive producers Michael Berk , Douglas Schwartz , and Gregory J.

Bonann , revived it for the first-run syndication market in Hasselhoff was given the title of executive producer for his work on bringing the show back.

The series was hugely successful, especially internationally. The audience was 65 percent female, [9] with its number one audience being women aged 18 to Speaking in , Schwartz explained that, after doing focus groups on Baywatch for about five years, they learned that the show appealed to this demographic because "most of [its] lead characters were strong, independent women who were heroic, who were saving lives, who were equal to men".

Interior locations were filmed at Culver Studios. David Hasselhoff also recorded a duet with Laura Branigan which was hugely successful for being broadcast as the closing track of the Baywatch TV series.

The single I Believe was originally released on CD album in In , with production costs rising in Los Angeles, and the syndication market shrinking, the producers sought to move the production elsewhere.

They filmed a pilot and announced plans to title the show Baywatch: Down Under. However, strong local opposition from residents of Avalon Beach, New South Wales eventually led to Pittwater Council , the local government area of which Avalon was part of, to permanently ban future production.

Baywatch filmed for two seasons in Hawaii, from until April Masini , a newspaper advice columnist, pitched the move to executive producer Gregory J.

Although the box sets are labeled "Season 1", "Season 2", etc. The second and third sets were released on October 31, Each set features a disc with Season 1 episodes on it.

These releases also do not contain any of the original music as it appeared when the episodes aired. They have been removed due to copyright agreements.

In August , Deadline reported that Fremantle is remastering the series. Due to expired licenses for much of the show's musical soundtrack, many of the shows episodes are either cut to remove songs, or re-scored and re-edited with new "soundalike" tracks.

The show is the subject of a running gag on Friends , where Chandler and Joey would watch Baywatch together religiously, including over the phone when Joey was living in another apartment.

Among other related jokes, Chandler names their pet chicken after Yasmine Bleeth although the bird later turns out to be male.

Many of the actors from the series have become closely associated with their roles in the series. David Hasselhoff has often referenced or satirized his role as Mitch Buchannon, notably in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie ; in which he appears in lifeguard attire similar to Mitch, runs across a beach in slow-motion, and displays superhuman swimming abilities similar Mitch's own feats of athleticism.

Babewatch is a satirical term sometimes used in connection with the series, which has been used by the humor magazine Mad and television commentators.

Baywatch is prominently featured in the mockumentary film Borat in which the character Borat Sagdiyev played by Sacha Baron Cohen , a Kazakh journalist with a misconstrued understanding of American customs and pop culture, becomes obsessed with Pamela Anderson after seeing her in an episode of the series which he believes to be a documentary and travels to America in a failed attempt to court her and later attempts to abduct her.

In a deleted scene, Borat creates a pilot episode of a Kazakh remake of Baywatch entitled Sexydrownwatch , which features "I'm Always Here" and Alexandra Paul reprising her role as Stephanie.

The trope is closely associated with the show and often referenced directly in parodies. The film adaptation is a comedy, written and directed by Jeremy Garelick.

Garelick's previous successes include the rewrite of The Hangover. In September , it was announced that Reno !

In October , it was announced that Paramount was moving forward with its big-screen adaptation of Baywatch and has loosely attached Dwayne Johnson to the project.

They just, as actors, were not strong enough, so we wouldn't give them big storylines," leading to relatively brief tenures.

Yasmine Bleeth "was doing drugs at the time," the producer said, and when she started "not showing up and having difficulties," Baywatch parted ways with her.

Electra quit because "she didn't feel" the show was right for her. Pamela Anderson walked away, too, to focus on her family after giving birth to her second child.

Baywatch shot primarily on location — on real California beaches with all of their benefits and risks. The pilot movie, Baywatch: Panic at Malibu Pier, filmed in early January , when the water off the coast of Malibu was a chilly if not dangerous 49 degrees.

Even worse, according to David Hasselhoff in his memoir , the water was loaded with garbage, feces, and hypodermic needles. Production was halted and moved to Hawaii when cast members contracted a stomach virus.

The water remained, according to Hasselhoff , "still filthy," and in order to prevent cast members from getting extremely sick from various pollutants, they "were doused in disinfectant by medics every time we came out of the water.

Parker, eventually hiring Pamela Anderson. She happened to be dating cast member David Charvet, something Baywatch co-creator and producer Michael Berk said he wasn't aware of at the time.

The couple eventually broke up, and Anderson eloped with Motley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in , the first milestone in their tumultuous , tabloid-friendly relationship.

Charvet, meanwhile, left the show in , but not before a romantic, onscreen, kiss-filled goodbye between his character and hers.

That scene filmed on a day when Lee happened to be visiting the Baywatch set. He didn't handle it well. According to the New York Times , representatives of many outlets that aired Baywatch called for Anderson's removal from the series, and producers were worried about losing ad revenue, or that the show could be canceled.

After nine seasons, Baywatch started getting a bit stale, so in it rebooted itself as Baywatch Hawaii, moving both the setting and shooting to beautiful Hawaii.

The move was moderately successful, with producers squeezing two more seasons out of the aging franchise. Who knows if it would've lasted even longer had the original plan to make Baywatch Down Under not fallen apart.

At the time, it was cheaper to film in Australia than California, according to News. Local residents strongly objected after members of the production overstepped their bounds, allegedly escorting a surfer off the beach and forcing out noisy skateboarding teens.

Area citizens also feared that in the future they'd have diminished access to the beach, nor did they want to deal with the possibility of looky-loo tourists.

After more than 1, residents showed up for a heated public hearing on the matter, the production backed off on its long-term plans, but only after a contingent from Hawaii offered a better deal.

Sean, J. They soon have a run-in with former lifeguard Jessie Owens, who is also competing in the Triathlon and has new infant son with her. That pair didn't care for the lifeguard series either, until Schwartz attended something called the Lifeguard Games at Bonann's behest.

That convinced him that there was a show in there somewhere, and with Berk, he developed a show called Baywatch and pitched it to CBS.

Also unlike its '90s iteration, the first season of Baywatch wasn't that popular, finishing at No. Ratings were bad, and Baywatch's NBC run ended after a single season.

Having had major success syndicating reruns of those shows, he suggested the Baywatch team buy back the rights to their show from GTG, get a new production company, and enter into the lucrative syndicated TV market.

Tinker sold them the rights, and by late , Baywatch was ready to go all over again. As a relatively unproven startup, and because per-episode budgets on first-run syndicated television dramas were nowhere near what network dramas were in the early s, those first few seasons of Baywatch had to do things a lot cheaper than they had with NBC.

Still, producers had to cut costs. One huge line item: star David Hasselhoff's salary. He agreed to a 50 percent reduction in his acting fee in exchange for an executive producer credit, which made him eligible for a chunk of the profits should the show find lasting success.

Obviously Baywatch was a popular TV show — otherwise it wouldn't have run for more than episodes over the course of more than a decade, launched the careers of multiple people, and inspired a movie of the same name.

What is a little surprising is how staggeringly popular the show was at the peak of its run. By the mid-'90s, each episode was viewed by 1.

With the world population around 5. The reason it surpassed the previous most popular show, Dallas : The spread of satellite dishes.

Broken down into male and female viewers, one might assume that the bikini-clad show's audience was overwhelmingly male.

The reason, according to co-creator Gregory J. Bonann, is that its female characters are "positive role models" who are "athletic, professional, intelligent, and able to make any rescue a man can make.

Baywatch was never a critically acclaimed show, but it knew what it was, and it was fine with its place in the TV landscape as a source of eye candy and escapism.

A near-constant stream of pretty people in skimpy outfits running on a beach made Baywatch memorable as a show slight in content but heavy on the visuals.

Douglas Schwartz helped shape that aesthetic, both as a co-creator of the series and a director of 43 episodes and three made-for-TV Baywatch movies — and he's legally blind.

When he was 20, Schwartz received a diagnosis of retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative condition that leads to extreme "tunnel vision.

Baywatch made stars out of many up-and-coming performers , notably Pamela Anderson as lifeguard C. Parker and a pre-beard and pre- Aquaman Jason Momoa.

But only a relative handful of actors and the "right" ones at that, according to cast agents could be a part of the show at any given time, leaving plenty of famous and talented people off the beach.

Scream star Neve Campbell auditioned but didn't fit in, while future A-list star Sandra Bullock said no thanks and canceled a scheduled audition.

Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher was almost cast, according to co-creator Michael Berk, while '90s pop singer and dancer Paula Abdul nearly replaced original cast member Erika Eleniak, ultimately losing the role of C.

Parker to Pamela Anderson. David Hasselhoff secured the lead role of lifeguard chief Mitch Buchannon, but he almost passed. The former Knight Rider leading man read the pilot script, and on first instinct rejected the role, recalling in his memoir Don't Hassel the Hoff that he told his agent at the time that it was "basically Knight Rider in a bathing suit.

Jeremy Jackson portrayed Hobie Buchannon for nine Baywatch seasons, but he wasn't producers' first choice. He began his stretch at just nine years old, winding up with the role after another, slightly older actor had almost landed the part: year-old Leonardo DiCaprio.

What happened? Hasselhoff happened. Hobie Buchannon is the son of his Baywatch character, Mitch Buchannon, and Hasselhoff thought that if a teenager was portraying his son, it would make him seem substantially older than if a child were to take the part.

Producers ignored Hasselhoff's concerns when they brought in Pamela Anderson — best known for her work on Home Improvement and in Playboy — in season two.

Hasselhoff objected to Anderson's casting, feeling that Baywatch was a family show, and no place for a woman who'd appeared nude in the pages of a magazine.

He also thought Anderson could be, well, distracting. Which is what happened. Apart from Playboy models in red swimsuits, the most memorable images from Baywatch are its countless slow-motion shots of heroic lifeguards or women in bikinis running across the sand at a languid pace to a soft rock soundtrack.

The Oscar-winning movie from featured lots of slowed-down running shots, and was parodied throughout the decade memorably in National Lampoon's Vacation.

A stylistic choice for sure, but it was also a practical measure and a cost-saving technique for producers. Lost isn't the only primarily beach-set show with a huge cast.

That makes for one of the biggest casts in TV history, and that's partially because the show was in production for so long — actor substitutions keep a show fresh — but there were plenty of other reasons for the show's revolving door-like personnel changes.

Co-creator Douglas Schwartz said that sometimes people made it into the show because of their agreeable appearance. They just, as actors, were not strong enough, so we wouldn't give them big storylines," leading to relatively brief tenures.
