One of theimost critically acclaimed shows in TV history, Homicide: Life On The Street re-invigorated 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 (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.
