From producer Aaron Spelling (TVs Charlies Angels and Starsky and Hutch) comes one of the toughest, action-packed crime-fighting shows of them all: S.W.A.T.! Spun off from The Rookies, and fueled by its signature hit theme song, S.W.A.T. chronicled the covert missions of the LAPD's Special Weapons And Tactics unit, an elite five-man team who are tackling situations too dangerous for even the police to handle.
The show introduced a new breed of hard-as-nails cops to audiences: Lt. Dan "Hondo" Harrelson (Steve Forrest; Spies Like Us, Mommie Dearest), Officer Jim Street (Robert Urich; TV's Vega$, Spencer For Hire), Sgt. Deacon Kay (Rod Perry), Officer Dominic Luca (Mark Shera; TV's Barnaby Jones), and Officer T.J. McCable (James Coleman).
After Sony released the first season of the show on DVD in 2003, fans had to wait until 2012, when Shout! Factory would release the second (and final) season of the ground-breaking TV series. Now folks can FINALLY get both seasons together in one package on January 16th
