    T.J. HOOKER:
    THE FIRST TWO SEASONS

    Series from TV Legends Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg
    Debuts on DVD August 9 in a Six-Disc Set
    Culver City, CA (June 13, 2005) – T.J. Hooker, the classic ‘80s police drama, will be available August 9 for the first time on DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. T.J. HOOKER: THE FIRST TWO SEASONS features the complete collection of 27 episodes on a six-disc DVD set. The set will be priced at $49.95 SLP.
    A blend of humor and on-the-streets grittiness, T.J. Hooker stars William Shatner (“Boston Legal,” Miss Congeniality, “Star Trek”) as veteran cop T. J. Hooker. After his partner is murdered, Hooker gives up his rank as Detective to become a patrolman again, determined to rid the streets of the kind of criminals responsible for his partner’s death. Now back in uniform, he’s assigned to train academy recruits and is paired with brash rookie Vince Romano (Adrian Zmed). Hooker’s no-nonsense ways result in clashes with his new partner as well as with station Captain Sheridan (Richard Herd). Heather Locklear -- (“Spin City,” “Melrose Place”) who began her successful career with the series -- is introduced in Season 2 as Sheridan’s daughter, Stacy.
    From the masterminds of TV drama, executive producers Aaron Spelling (“Charlie’s Angels,” “Beverly Hills 90210”) and Leonard Goldberg (“Starsky and Hutch,” “Charlie’s Angels”), T.J. Hooker first aired on ABC in March 1982. The series lasted four successful seasons, following in the footsteps of “Starsky and Hutch,” to become one of the decade’s most popular cop dramas. The first and second seasons included guest appearances by Nicole Eggert (“Baywatch”), James Darren (“Gidget”), The Beach Boys and Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek).
