Product Description:

HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET is one of the most popular, innovative, and critically acclaimed police shows in television history. Based on the award-winning book by David Simon and adapted for television by Barry Levinson (RAIN MAN, DINER) and Tom Fontana (St. Elsewhere, Oz), the series stars Richard Belzer, Yaphet Kotto, Andre Braugher, and Ned Beatty as a team of homicide detectives solving cases on the gritty streets of Baltimore. The series is revered by fans and critics alike for eschewing typical crime drama violence in favor of gripping storylines, strong writing, compelling characters, and a superb ensemble cast. This 4-volume set collects all 13 episodes from the first two seasons.

Description by New Video Group:

One of the most critically acclaimed shows in history, HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET reinvigorated a tired genre by focusing on the grueling work of solving murders instead of an endless succession of bloody crimes and car chases. Inspired by David Simon's Edgar Award winning account of Baltimore homicide detectives and brought to television by director Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Oz) and writer Paul Attanasio (Gideon's Crossing), HOMICIDE boasted a powerhouse cast featuring Ned Beatty (Network, Deliverance), Yaphet Kotto (Alien), Richard Belzer (Law & Order: SVU), and breakout star Andre Braugher (Frequency). The critical response was overwhelming: HOMICIDE won multiple Emmy and Writer's Guild of America Awards and is one of just two shows in history to claim three Peabody Awards. Now, HOMICIDE debuts on DVD with this collector's set featuring all 13 episodes from the first two seasons--in the order intended by the series' producers.
