The central premise of this series is derived from "Sea of Fire", an episode of the TV series The Equalizer. In that episode, Robert McCall (Edward Woodward's character) attempts to scare a street gang into going straight by taking them to a morgue. There, McCall introduces the gang to one of his friends, a former hit man, who relates a dream he had of standing beside a sea of fire, surrounded by all the people he ever killed.Template:Citation needed

In 1999, Carrie-Anne Moss starred in The Matrix, which had no relationship to the television series apart from its title and Moss' involvement. As a result, Matrix was made available for syndication in Canada and the United States.
