BURBANK, CA (November 11, 2009) - A raw and authentic look at the police unit in Los Angeles, Southland
is a compelling new series from Emmy® Award-winning producer John Wells (ER, The West Wing
). A fast-moving drama that explores the lives of cops, criminals, victims and their families, Southland
features a highly talented ensemble cast led by Ben McKenzie (The O.C.
), Michael Cudlitz (Band of Brothers
) and Regina King (24
). Warner Home Video (WHV) is releasing the critically acclaimed Southland: The Complete First Season, uncensored
, on DVD January 26, 2010, with a SRP of $29.98.
Created by John Wells (ER, The West Wing, Third Watch
), Christopher Chulack (ER, Third Watch
) and Ann Biderman (Public Enemies, Hill Street Blues
), Southland: The Complete First Season
follows the complicated lives dedicated LAPD officers and detectives lead as they take on criminals, victims and a city tainted by vice and seething with danger. The rookie cop and his savvier, veteran colleagues try to make a difference in the not so glamorous part of Hollywood, but as one wised-up cop says, "Every once in a while, you get to take a bad guy off the street for good. And that, my friend, is God's work."
"Southland: The Complete First Season
has seven uncensored episodes of the gripping, action-packed series that show life behind the glamour of this diverse and dynamic city," said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV & Special Interest Marketing. "Warner Home Video is thrilled to bring the first season of this gritty police drama to DVD."
Premiering to rave reviews, Southland
was called "tough-minded [and] suspenseful" by The New York Times
, which also proclaimed that "Southland
is commendably stinting and cold, a series that doesn't aim to please, and is all the more pleasurable for it." The Hollywood Reporter
"exciting, smart, realistic and brilliant," while Daily Variety
said "[John] Wells and company have delivered a cop drama with its own racing pulse. The crisp execution...Southland: The Complete First Season
has a decidedly elite cable feel."
Partnered with hardened, veteran colleagues, a rookie cop (McKenzie) tries to make a difference in the not so glamorous parts of Southern California, where he quickly learns that the reality of being out in the field is nothing like his preparation at the Academy.
