Pick Of The Day: Slaughter Nick For President

Fans of action/adventure TV might remember a show called Tropical Heat that aired in the early ’90s. It was a Canadian co-pro with Israel and Mexico and featured a retired Drug Enforcement Agency agent named Nick Slaughter who set up a detective agency in Florida where he solved crimes with the help of a local travel agent.

For some reason, the series became a cult favourite in Serbia. In this Canadian documentary which screens tonight at the RPL Theatre at 9 p.m. and Friday night at 7 p.m., the actor who played Slaughter (Rob Stewart) journeys to Serbia to explore his folk hero status in that country.
