Eagleheart is an action-comedy television series that aired on the American programming block Adult Swim. Eagleheart is produced by Conan O'Brien's production company, Conaco, and stars Chris Elliott as Chris Monsanto. The series aired from 2011 to 2014.[1]


Eagleheart follows US Marshal Chris Monsanto as he fights crime with his two partners: the slow-witted Brett and by-the-book Susie. They take on drug smugglers, art thieves, kidnappers, and con artists with bloody violence and gruesome deaths ensuing. The Marshals report to The Chief who gives them their assignments. There is little continuity between episodes in the first two seasons, with no running storylines. The third season features an extended season-long storyline entitled Paradise Rising.

Eagleheart parodies many cop shows, most notably Walker, Texas Ranger. It portrays a great deal of graphic violence.[2]
