The original Naked Weapon was a theatrical reboot of the 1982 sitcom “Special Brigade.” The show’s creators – David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker – mercilessly parodied a crime drama about cops. The TV adventures of Detective Frank Drebin, played by Leslie Nielsen, were so poorly received that it was taken off the air after just six episodes.
