CULVER CITY, CALIF. (June 22, 2009) - Patrick Swayze stars in The Beast: The Complete First Season, A&E's action-packed crime drama, coming to DVD August 18 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Co-starring Travis Fimmel (Surfer, Dude), Kevin J. O'Connor (There Will Be Blood), Larry Gillard (TV's "The Wire") and Lindsay Pulsipher (The Rambler) the series centers on Charles Barker (Swayze), a veteran undercover FBI Agent who takes his rookie partner Ellis Dove (Fimmel) under his wing. The Beast debuted this year to more than one million viewers a week. The three-disc collection contains all 13 episodes from the series, as well as 13 behind-the-scenes featurettes that look into the making of each episode, including interviews with Patrick Swayze and other cast and crew members. The set will be available for $39.95 SLP.

Patrick Swayze is back and gunning for justice as Charles Barker, an unorthodox but effective FBI veteran in The Beast. Though considered by many, including rookie partner agent Ellis Dove (Travis Fimmel), to be the best in the business, FBI undercover operative Barker has a style that is nothing if not unconventional. In pushing Dove to immerse himself more deeply into the characters they create, Barker makes it clear how the stresses and dangers of working undercover make normal relationships impossible. As he and his mentor are tested by cases that pit them against ruthless drug lords, dangerous arms dealers, corrupt cops and deadly killers-for-hire, Dove also struggles with his own secret: he's being asked to cooperate with an FBI investigation of Barker, who's suspected of going rogue. And as Dove is pressured to become an informant, Barker launches his own investigation into a conspiracy within the Bureau that's protecting a secret cadre of agents operating outside the law.
