Emerald Point N.A.S is an American television drama starring Dennis Weaver that premiered on CBS on Monday, September 26, 1983. It was cancelled in 1984 after twenty-two weeks, its final episode airing March 12, 1984.

Created by Richard and Esther Shapiro, who had previously devised Dynasty, the series was set at a Naval Air Station (the N.A.S. of the title) somewhere in the American South and dealt with the lives of the personnel stationed there. Combining military and espionage-based storylines with plots revolving around family intrigue, romance and scheming for power, Emerald Point N.A.S was a conventional soap opera.

Cast[edit]

The series' theme tune was composed by Bill Conti, who had previously written the music for other prime-time dramas such as Dynasty, Falcon Crest and Cagney and Lacey.
