From a media release:
Season One of the Hit Series will be Released on DVD and Blu-ray in Canada on October 13th
Phase 4 Films announced today that it has acquired the English Language DVD rights to the smash hit series FLASHPOINT, starring Hugh Dillon (“Durham County”), Enrico Colantoni (“Just Shoot Me”), Amy Jo Johnson (“Felicity”) and David Paetkau (“Final Destination 2”). Phase 4 will release Season One of the television series on DVD and Blu-ray on October 13, 2009.
Inspired by Toronto’s real life Emergency Task Force, FLASHPOINT is an emotional journey following the lives of an elite police tactical team, the Strategic Response Unit (SRU). The SRU is a team of cops like no other – they’re the elite, the blueblood of the force. High risk is their business, and life-and-death stakes are their world. The action-packed series highlights both the tactical and the psychological aspects of police work and examines the emotional toll of bearing constant witness to the extremes of human distress.
Phase 4 Films will also distribute Season Two, in 2010.
