New Release: Prime Suspect Complete Collection DVD

Starring Oscar-winner Helen Mirren (The Tempest) in her iconic British TV role, Prime Suspect: The Complete Collection debuted on DVD from Acorn Media on Sept. 7, 2010.

Mirren stars as Detective Jane Tennison, a tenacious, driven and deeply flawed member of Britain’s Metropolitan Police, better known on these shores as Scotland Yard. Over the course of the series, Tennison rises through the law enforcement ranks, solving horrific crimes while battling office sexism and her own demons.

Seen in the U.S. on PBS’s Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery! since the 1990s (1991-93, 1995-96, 2003 and 2006), Prime Suspect remains a revolutionary police procedural/drama and has won more than 20 major international awards, including seven Emmy Awards, eight BAFTAs and a Peabody.

The television series also features some of Britain’s biggest stars, including Ralph Fiennes (the Harry Potter series, Cemetery Junction), Tom Wilkinson (44-Inch Chest), David Thewlis (Harry Potter series), Ciarán Hinds (The Eclipse), Zoë Wanamaker (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) and Jonny Lee Miller (The Flying Scotsman).

The nine-DVD, 25-hour set includes nine feature-length mysteries as well as a 50-minute behind-the-scenes special. It carries a list price of $124.99.
