Nickname: "The Violinist"

Logo: On a black background, we see almost to the left a picture of a man (who happens to be Bochco's father) playing the violin. The violin's bow moves across it rapidly, and the man shakes a little bit as it plays a loud and fast-paced tune. While that happens, Steven Bochco's signature is written slightly over the picture, and "
P R O D U C T I O N S" appears below the signature.

  • On Capitol Critters, an animated mouse plays the violin. The animation was provided by Hanna-Barbera Productions.
  • On Murder in the First, after the text appears, the logo freezes.

FX/SFX: The picture animating.

Music/Sounds: A very dramatic and fast-paced violin tune (in that case, was ripped off as a piece of "The Four Seasons: Summer" by Antonio Vivaldi), which would carry on to the logos that follow it (such as either the 20th Television logo, the Paramount Television logo, or the CBS Productions logo), CBS airings of Brooklyn South and ABC airings of Blind Justice would have a voice over.

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • On Capitol Critters, the music is faster and higher-pitched.
  • On Murder in the First, the theme is shortened.

Uncommon. It's intact on all of Bochco's series, such asDoogie Howser, M.D. (the first show this logo was used on), NYPD Blue on H&I, Raising the Bar, Commander in Chief, Brooklyn South,Cop Rock, and Blind Justice. Most recently used on Murder in the First on TNT. The Capitol Critters variant is extinct and was last seen in the mid-90s on Cartoon Network.
