TWO GROUNDBREAKING CRIME SHOWS COME TO DVD FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER: DRAGNET 1967: SEASON 1 AND QUINCY, M.E.: SEASONS 1 & 2

Book ´┐Żem Both June 7, 2005

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- Friday, May 13 -- The story you are about to read is true: Dragnet, the show that created the police drama genre, and Quincy M.E., the Emmy-nominated series that launched the medical investigation genre, are both headed to DVD for the first time June 7, 2005.

Dragnet 1967: Season 1 is the DVD release fans have been waiting for. The series stars writer-producer-director Jack Webb as the tough-as-nails Sgt. Joe Friday and Harry Morgan ("M*A*S*H") as his faithful partner, Officer Bill Gannon. This one-of-a-kind two-disc collection contains all 17 episodes, available together as The Complete First Season for the first time ever. This set includes a bonus CD featuring a rare recording from the original "Dragnet" radio series, the show that inspired the unforgettable TV crime show.

Quincy, M.E.: Seasons 1 & 2 brings the trail-blazing series that foreshadowed the recent crop of medical and crime scene investigation shows to DVD. Television icon Jack Klugman ("The Odd Couple") portrays the crusading and headstrong coroner Dr. Quincy in a role that earned him four Emmy nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. The three disc set includes all 16 episodes from the show's first and second seasons. Guest stars include Buddy Hackett, Donna Mills, June Lockhart and Kim Cattrall.

Both collections are priced at $39.98 SRP.
