Anyone who's a fan of Adam-12
ought to get a kick out of our headline up there! A "211" is a robbery in police-radio-speak, and anyone who watched this program figured that out pretty quickly (they used it often enough). But no, we didn't really steal the below box art from Universal; they kindly provided it to us as always. They also provided a lot of new information about the upcoming release, due to roll on the streets August 23rd
. Here's the description:
Race through the streets of Los Angeles with Adam-12, the series that defined the police drama genre. Still mourning the death of his former partner, Office Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) is teamed with rookie Officer Jim Reed (Kent McCord) and together they serve and protect the City of Angels as Adam-12, their unit's radio call number. Watch as these brothers in blue struggle to manage the job's demands and frustrations, as they battle drug dealers, intervene in domestic disputes and pursue suspects in high-speed chases. You have the right to remain silent, sit back and ride along with the officers of Adam-12! A top ten Nielsen-rated show starring Kent McCord and Martin Milner, with guest stars including Karen Black, Harry Dean stanton and Barry Williams. Includes all 26 episodes of the complete first season!
As we've mentioned in previous news, the cost will be $39.98 SRP for "13 TV hours" (actual DVD running time is 10 hours, 47 minutes) on 2 double-sided DVDs. Full frame video, English Mono audio, English and Spanish subtitles. Don't forget that this show was an Emmy Award Winner for Outstanding Music Composition, if that sort of thing interests you. Of more interest will be guest stars beyond the ones in the official description: Cloris Leachman, Tim Matheson, Dick Sargent, and Ken Swofford. Here's that artwork we promised you:
