New Release: Detroit 1-8-7 DVD

Deetroit 1-8-7 TV scene

Michael Imperioli is Detective Louis Fitch in Detroit 1-8-7.

Lionsgate released the first and only season of the cancelled, tough-talking cop crime drama TV series Detroit 1-8-7, starring Michael Imperioli (TV’s The Sopranos), on DVD on Aug. 30, 2011. Detroit 1-8-7: Season One is a four-disc set that carries the list price of $29.98.

In the television show, Imperioli plays Louis Fitch, a Detroit police detective who agrees to have his unit’s days filmed by a documentary crew as they try to uphold the law in their harsh native town. Other officers include Lieutenant Mason (Aisha Hinds, The Next Three Days) as a single mother struggling to balance her work and home life, and Jon Michael Hill (Falling Overnight) as Detective Damon Washington, Fitch’s streetwise partner.

This is the second recent cop television show starring Imperioli as a law-enforcer that was cancelled after its first season, following 2008’s Life On Mars. Far be it from us to give career advice, but perhaps Mr. Imperioli should consider aiming for roles that placed him on the other side of the law. Or maybe The Sopranos was just a fluke…

No special features are on the DVD.
