“It’s the cop show that just won’t quit: The gritty, unassumingly masterful Southland” – Entertainment Weekly
BURBANK, CA (May 16, 2013) – An insider’s look into LA’s notorious police department, the Peabody Award–winning Southland follows the complex lives of the dedicated patrol officers and detectives as they struggle to protect the innocent and remain righteous amid the iniquities of the criminals around them. Marshaling felons, victims and a city seething with corruption and danger, Southland presents a glimpse into the professional and private lives of the LAPD unlike any other. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) will release Southland: The Complete Fifth and Final Season on DVD August 13, 2013. This 2-disc DVD release contains all 10 explosive episodes from Season Five and behind-the-scenes bonus content. The DVD is available to own for $39.98 SRP.
In the fifth and final season of this critically acclaimed series, Officers Cooper, Sherman and Bryant, as well as Detective Adams, face some of their toughest personal and professional challenges yet. A dominatrix in overdrive. A case of infanticide. A Robin Hood bank robber. Victims cooked by their killer. Rival gangs at a drug dealer’s funeral. A tourist flattened by a Hollywood tour bus. On their darkest, most dangerous days, this is what L.A.’s beat cops and detectives confront on the sun-baked streets of the Southland. And the fallout seeps into their personal lives – collateral damage from a 24/7 job that demands an arsenal of razor-sharp instincts and quicksilver reflexes.
“Southland has been one of the most emotionally engaging and authentic police dramas on air in the last five years,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing. “While we’re sad to see the show come to an end, we are excited to make Southland: The Complete Fifth and Final Season available on DVD, so the show’s devoted fans can re-watch their favorite episodes and complete their collection.”
