87th Precinct - 'The Complete Series' with Normal Fell (Before He Was 'Mr. Roper'!)
TMG sets an 8/7 release date for 'The 87th'
Posted by David Lambert
For the first time, NBC-Universal and Timeless Media Group bring you the complete, landmark series, 87th Precinct, all 30 uncut black & white episodes direct from the Universal vaults. Manhattan's 87th Precinct forms the backdrop for this grim and gritty police drama based on the long-running series of novels by Ed McBain. Storylines focus on neighborhood crime, and the tight-knit lives of the officers of the 87th and their families: Steve Carella (Robert Lansing) and his deaf/mute wife, Teddy (Gena Rowlands), rookie Bert Kling (Ron Harper), long-time veteran Roger Havilland (Gregory Walcott) and the wryly philosophical Meyer Meyer (Norman Fell).
Each gripping story features performances from the top rung of the acting profession, including Jack Albertson and Beverly Garland (Killer's Payoff), Robert Culp (The Floater), Dennis Hopper (My Friend, My Enemy), Jeanette Nolan (Idol in the Dust), Peter Falk (The Pigeon) and many more!
On August 7th, Timeless Media Group (TMG) will release 87th Precinct - The Complete Series on DVD. This 6-disc set, running 1470 minutes, will cost $49.98 SRP. You can pre-order it from Amazon at the button link below, and underneath that is the package art:
