Beginning April 28, iTunes customers will be able to purchase compelling character-driven series such as "21 Jump Street," "Hunter" "The Greatest American Hero" and "Wiseguy," with other titles to be added in the coming weeks.

-Representing the worldwide distribution rights to over 1,000 hours of Cannell-produced series and TV movies, Stephen J. Cannell Productions, Inc. controls one of the largest independent libraries of television programming in the world.

-Stephen J Cannell Productions, Inc. has partnered with New Video, a leading digital aggregator of independent video content, to bring these highly sought after series to the iTunes Store, the world's most popular online music, TV and movie destination. Individual episodes are available for purchase at $1.99, and full season passes of each series are available at a discount. New Video and Stephen J. Cannell Productions, Inc. look forward to expanding their partnership to make more quality Cannell programming available in digital format on iTunes. Shows now available include:

21 Jump Street (1986-1991 FOX)

Starring Holly Robinson Peete, Dustin Nguyen, Peter DeLuise, Steven Williams, Johnny Depp and Sal Jenco. They are a new breed of undercover police officers � an elite unit of baby-faced cops who walk their beat down high school hallways. With headquarters in an abandoned chapel located at 21 Jump Street, these rookie cops pose as students to infiltrate the world of teenage crime and they all answer to the hard-nosed, by-the-book Captain Adam Fuller.

The Greatest American Hero (1980-1983 ABC)

Starring William Katt, Robert Culp, Connie Sellecca, Michael Pare and Faye Grant. William Katt plays Ralph Hinkley, an earnest high school teacher who is presented with an unusual red flying suit with super powers. Among the capabilities the suit provides him are to become invisible, have holographic vision and the ability to fly. In spite of the fact that he promptly manages to lose the suit's operations manual, he is reluctantly pressed into service as a crime fighter.

Hunter (1984-1991 NBC)

Starring Fred Dryer and Stepfanie Kramer. He plays by his own rules. He hates the pimps, pushers, creeps and killers that prowl our city streets. And he never fires a warning shot. Fred Dryer stars as the maverick police detective who along with partner Dee Dee 'The Brass Cupcake' McCall (Stepfanie Kramer) brought a tough new attitude to television.

Wiseguy (1987-1990 CBS)

Starring Ken Wahl, Jonathan Banks and Jim Byrnes. Vinnie Terranova (Ken Wahl), a tough, street-wise undercover Federal agent, infiltrates the organized-crime syndicate in Atlantic City where, with one slip of his cover, he could end up a dead man.

Silk Stalkings (1991-1999 CBS/USA Network)

Starring Rob Estes, Mitzi Kapture, Ben Vereen. This provocative series follows the casework of homicide detectives Chris Lorenzo and Rita Lance with an unusual specialty: high profile crimes of passion. The elite Ocean side community of Palm Beach that they patrol has its fair share of society murders, or as they refer to them, "silk stalkings."

**Two more popular series, The Commish and Renegade will also be available on iTunes in the coming months.
