'Baywatch' cast reunite for 30th anniversary as show relaunches globally
Many of the cast from the show's 11 seasons - excluding David Hasselhoff who is on tour in Germany - turned out in Santa Monica for a reunion and to launch the HD remastered version of the show, which has recently been sold to most territories around the world.
It's been thirty years since the beautiful red-swimsuited cast of 'Baywatch' first hit screens and became a global phenomenon, at the time winning the Guinness World Record for having the largest global TV audience in history.
Despite its success, the reason the show was so popular wasn't the reason the show was made, according to original castmember Erika Eleniak.
She said: "When we did the show, it was actually a serious look at lifeguarding.
We'd had a lot of cop shows, doctors shows, lawyers shows, even E.R.
Shows but nothing about lifeguarding.
We were on NBC originally which was the most conservative network on television at the time and everything was done on regulation and it absolutely evolved over the years.
People evolved and the show evolved and it became unbelievable."
Despite the popularity of the far right Alternative for Germany in the region, the east German town of Neuruppin has said it is keen to welcome migrants to move to and settle in the town. View on euronews
