INTELLIGENCE, SEASON ONE
Debuts on DVD May 6, 2008
Paradox Entertainment Group announces the May 6, 2008 DVD debut of Intelligence, Season One, a critically acclaimed crime drama series in the vein of The Wire and The Sopranos from the creator of Da Vinci’s Inquest. The Canadian series has been nominated for 11 Gemini Awards, including Best Dramatic Series, Best Actor, and Best Actress.
Chris Haddock’s Intelligence takes you deep inside the murky world of organized crime and the cops who keep tabs on it. As a dedicated father, respected businessman, and big-time drug smuggler, Jimmy Reardon (Ian Tracey) feels the heat from others muscling in on his territory. Mary Spalding (Klea Scott), the ruthlessly ambitious head of Vancouver’s Organized Crime Unit, fears her rivals in the intelligence community more than she fears criminals. Together, Jimmy and Mary form an uneasy alliance that threatens to undo them both.
With a uniformly excellent ensemble cast, the series explores the theme of information as the most valuable modern commodity-as necessary as money, as dangerous as sex, and as addictive as drugs.
From Vancouver’s mean streets to its high-rise offices, Intelligence’s gritty realism is accented by Schaun Tozer’s moody score and cutting-edge soundtrack.
â€œThis DVD release will satisfy demands of both the devoted audience and those who have heard the incredible critical reviews and fanatical word-of-mouth,â€ says series creator Haddock. â€œWe’ve heard the call from those who are eager to enjoy this internationally acclaimed series being hailed by many as the best thing on the box.â€ Haddock Entertainment and CBC are currently in negotiations about the series’ renewal for a third season.
