New Release: The Commish and Renegade Complete Series DVDs

The Commish

Mill Creek Entertainment issued the complete series collections of the 1990s television shows The Commish and Renegade on DVD on Oct. 12, 2010. The two TV shows from the library of Stephen J. Cannell each carry a suggested retail price of $69.98.

The Commish is the drama series that first introduced TV audiences to Michael Chiklis of The Shield fame. In police TV show The Commish, Chiklis stars as Tony Scali, a no-nonsense police commissioner revered by his officers and community for his unorthodox style and compassionate nature. As a former Brooklyn cop, Tony uses tough and, at times, controversial methods to bring perpetrators to justice in his small town, where solutions to difficult situations often require considerable creativity.

The complete series DVD debut of The Commish marks the first time that seasons three through five were available on home video.

Renegade stars Lorenzo Lamas (Grease) as Reno Raines, a former police officer who testified against some corrupt cops on the force. In retaliation, the leaders of the unscrupulous bunch went gunning for Raines, but killed his girlfriend instead. Framed for the murder, Raines is forced to live his life on the run from the law, moving from place to place in the American Southwest. But just because he’s on the lam, doesn’t mean his thirst for justice has ended.

As with The Commish, the complete series DVD debut of Renegade includes a pair of seasons — the final two — that were never before available on disc.
