    FOREVER KNIGHT
    THE TRILOGY: PART THREE

    Stylish Cult Favorite Vampire TV Series
    Starring Geraint Wyn Davies, Catherine Disher, Nigel Bennett and
    Ben Bass Is Back with the Final 22 Episodes on DVD October 3


    Culver City, CA (July 17, 2006) – Creator James Parriott (TV’s “Grey’s Anatomy”) unleashes the undead for the last time when Forever Knight The Trilogy: Part Three, debuts on DVD October 3 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The TV series stars Geraint Wyn Davies (TV’s “24”) as Nick Knight, a stylish and sexy 13th-century vampire working as a police detective in modern-day Toronto in order to atone for the sins of his past. Also starring is Catherine Disher (TV’s “Murder in the Hamptons”) as Natalie, the forensic pathologist who keeps Nick’s secret while battling his nemesis Lacroix (Nigel Bennett from The Skulls) to gain back Nick’s immortal soul. Fans can now complete their collection with this five-disc boxed set featuring all 22 episodes from the series’ electrifying final season. The DVD will be priced at $59.95 SLP.

    In 2004, Forever Knight was included on TV Guide’s list of the Top 25 Cult TV Shows of All Time. The series debuted on CBS August 1, 1992, as part of an innovative new programming schedule dubbed “Crimetime after Primetime.” Despite the fervor of its fans, the series was temporarily cancelled after its first season when the network acquired Late Night with David Letterman. Following an aggressive letter-writing campaign, the series returned in syndication for its second and third seasons. The series continues to have a strong following among fans, with numerous websites devoted to deconstructing its mythology and creating new stories based on the original characters. Three novels were written based on the series: A Stirring of Dust by Susan Sizemore, Intimations of Mortality by Susan Garrett, and These Our Revels by Anne Hathaway Nayne. Over the course of its three season run, the series was nominated for 14 Gemini Awards® (the Canadian equivalent of the Emmy®), including a win for Bennett as Best Supporting Actor. For this season, the show was nominated for Best Dramatic Series and Best Original Music Score.

    Forever Knight The Trilogy: Part Three introduces a new supporting cast of characters. While Nick and his eternal nemesis Lacroix are still at each others’ throats, a new police captain, Joe Reese (Blu Mankuma), takes over the 96th Precinct night shift and Nick has a new partner, Tracy Vetter (Lisa Ryder from TV’s “Andromeda”), who becomes romantically involved with the new vampire in town, Javier Vachon (Ben Bass from TV’s “Queer as Folk”). Other highlights of the final season include tricky murder investigations, spiritual healers, Nick catching a bullet in the head, and a demonic dog.

    Glad to finally see the press release! I'm more fortunate than most. This is my only series so far that was in danger of never being completed. So this is really good news!

    Congratulations Kristin! I look forward to seeing your work. [​IMG]

    Fantastic news! I've been holding out on buying the other two seasons until this one was announced. It would be great if they'd offer a boxed set of the whole series (and if they fixed the video quality problems I read about with the first season).

    Thanks, Sony!

    Cool. About time! Too bad there aren't any audio commentaries or featurettes for the season 3 set or the deleted scenes/blooper reels that the creators of the show offered up before.

    We *almost* had deleted seasons on season 3's set. Gillian Horvath - the writer for several episodes - has lost footage and submitted it to Sony, but apparently there were legal issues.
