Republic of Doyle - Acorn to Deliver a State-Side Release of Season 1 DVDs

3-disc set will come south of the border in just a couple of weeks

Posted by David Lambert
    For this private detective, trouble is a way of life. "Smart and fun" - Toronto Star (Canada); "Sharp, comedic crime drama" - The Globe and Mail (Canada); "Fast-paced, witty, old-fashioned fun" - The Globe and Mail (Canada). Guest stars in this award-winning dramedy include Victor Garber (Argo), Nicholas Campbell (Da Vinci's Inquest), Ian Tracey (Intelligence), and Gordon Pinsent (Away from Her). NOTE: Contains mild language and sexual situations.

    For Jake Doyle, dodging bullets is a lot less dangerous than his personal life. Jake (Allan Hawco, Love & Savagery) and his ex-cop father, Malachy (Sean McGinley, Single-Handed), run a Newfoundland detective agency. Their rugged seaside town never lacks for intriguing cases, from cheating spouses to robberies, arson, and even murder. Father and son have completely different ways of handling things, and that turns up the heat on their suspects-not to mention their tight-knit family. But the real fireworks stem from Jake's roguish ways. Whether it's an ex-wife (Rachel Wilson, Total Drama) he can't shake or the hot new cop (Krystin Pellerin, The Tudors) he works with, Jake Doyle just can't stop breaking the rules.
Back in 2010, Republic of Doyle - Season 1 came to DVD in Canada from Paradox Entertainment. Now RLJ Entertainment's Acorn brand will release it in the USA, with 12 episodes on a 3-disc set for $39.99 SRP. It's available starting May 6th, and includes bonus audio commentary for episodes 9 and 12 (with producer Rob Blackie, star/executive producer Allan Hawco, writer/co-creator Perry Chafe, and executive producer John Vatcher), and "The Making of Republic of Doyle" 19-minute featurette. Anamorphic widescreen video, English audio and English subtitles round out the specs for this title. Here's the package art:
