Street Hawk -The Complete Series: Details, Extras and Packaging from this Summer's Fabulous/Shout! DVDs
4-disc set packed with bonus material races into stores this July
Posted by David Lambert
Broadcast by ABC in the mid 80's, this series quickly became a massive hit. Jesse Mach, an ex-motorcycle cop injured in the line of duty and now a police trouble shooter, has been recruited for a top secret government mission: to ride Street Hawk, an all-terrain attack motorcycle designed to fight urban crime, capable of incredible speeds of up to 300 mph and immense firepower. Only one man, Norman Tuttle, knows Jesse Mach's true identity. The Man, The Machine: Street Hawk.
Stars Rex Smith, Richard Venture, Joe Regalbuto, Jeannie Wilson. The musical theme was composed by Tangerine Dream and produced by Christopher Franke. Guest Stars: George Clooney, Christopher Lloyd, Dennis Franz, Tom Everett and more!
Since the beginning of the TV-on-DVD era, fans have eagerly wanted this show to come out on disc! And then, late last year, we had the heads-up that Fabulous Films was preparing a North American release of Street Hawk - The Complete Series on DVD. Now we've got the scoop on all the details, and package art, for this long-awaited release.
On July 13th, Fabulous Films and distributor Shout! Factory will release this as a 4-disc set, running approximately 690 minutes. Video will be in the original full frame aspect ratio, and audio is presented in English Dolby 2.0 format. Cost is $39.98 SRP. In addition to all 12 regular-season episodes, you'll get two different versions of the pilot telefilm, plus other bonus material:
