Acorn Media to release PRIME SUSPECT: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION in Sept.

Acorn Media will be releasing PRIME SUSPECT: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION, on DVD, on Sept 7th, 2010. For those that don’t know, PS is one of the best damn crime shows ever made. This really should be owned by all of us.

Oscar® winner Helen Mirren is Detective Jane Tennison, “one of the great character creations of our time” (The Washington Post), in a series that won more than 20 major international awards and raised the bar for police dramas.

Tenacious, driven, and deeply flawed, Tennison rises through the ranks of Britain’s Metropolitan Police, solving horrific crimes while battling office sexism and her own demons. “Rare is the drama that works so well on two levels: as a crackling whodunit and as a finely tuned character study of a strong but insecure woman trying to prove herself in a man’s world” (Time).

Seen on Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery! and created by crime writer Lynda La Plante, Prime Suspect features some of Britain’s biggest stars, including Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient), Tom Wilkinson (Michael Clayton), Zoë Wanamaker (Poirot), David Thewlis (Harry Potter), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes), Ciarán Hinds (Jane Eyre), Tom Bell (Reilly: Ace of Spies), and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting).
