A Chicago cop (Michael Pare) is sent to Houston after getting involved in a shooting incident. Then the mafia put out a contract on his life, Once in Houston he is teamed with a native (Michael Beck). And from the beginning the two of them don't get along.

Houston Knights was a Television Crime Drama set in Houston, Texas. The show ran on CBS from 1987 to 1988. The core of the show was the partnership between two very different cops from two different cultures. Chicago Cop Joey LaFiamma, played by Michael Pare, is transferred to Houston after he kills a mobster from a powerful Mafia family and a contract is put out on him. Once there, he is partnered with Levon Lundy, played by Michael Beck, the grandson of a Texas Ranger.

Although as different as night and day, and after a rocky beginning (the two engage in a fist-fight) they form a successful partnership and become friends . This is aided to a certain extent by an event where a hitman from Chicago who holds the contract to shoot La Fiamma arrives in Houston and is ultimately killed by Lundy.

During the series, it is revealed that both La Fiamma and Lundy have their own personal demons; La Fiamma's Chicago police partner had been killed when he went ahead while La Fiamma had waited for backup to arrive. Lundy's wife had been killed by an explosion that was intended to kill him.
