Burke's Law - DVD Release Info & Cover Art for VCI's Season 1, Volume 2 Set

Finish the first season on November 18th

Posted by David Lambert
    He's BACK!!! VCI is proud to announce the second volume of Burke's Law which will complete the award-winning inaugural season. Burke's Law was a detective series that ran on ABC from 1963 to 1965. Gene Barry starred as Amos Burke, the suave millionaire Chief of Detectives for Los Angeles, who was chauffeured around to solve crimes in his Silver Cloud II Rolls-Royce. The series featured stylish settings, strange twists on homicides, and legendary guest stars. During the opening credits, as the opening title burst on screen, and a woman s voice was heard seductively saying "It's Burke's Law!" The title also reflected Burke s practice of providing wisdom: "... A smart policeman never mixes business with vermouth - Burke s Law."

    Each episode had the title "Who Killed..." followed by the victim's name. The opening of the show revealed the murder, but not the murderer (that was left for Captain Burke to discover.) The show would use a blend of wit and drama, as Burke would sort through a suspicious assortment of shady characters. Each suspect was questioned by Captain Burke and his fellow detectives, Rookie Detective Tim Tilson (played by Gary Conway) and Sergeant Lester Hart (played by Regis Toomey), until the guilty party was identified. Burke's Law won the 1964 Golden Globe as Best TV Show. Gene Barry won the 1964 Golden Globe for Best Male TV Star.
Following up on last April's initial release, VCI Entertainment has announced that November 18th will be the availability date for Burke's Law - Season 1, Volume 2 on DVD. The 4-disc set will run approximately 800 minutes, with digitally restored picture and sound. There will also be Vintage Television Commercials included on the release, which comes in an attractive 'Holofoil' packaging that we show the cover art to below. Cost is $29.99 SRP, but you can pre-order it at a discount from Amazon using the provided button link:
