Shout Factory just announced the upcoming release of the two-time golden Globe and ten-time Emmy winning TV series Ironside: Season 1 in April.
Confined to a wheelchair by a sniper’s bullet, former Chief of Detectives Robert T. Ironside (Raymond Burr) consults for the San Francisco police department, solving major crimes with a crack team of investigators, including Detective Sergeant Ed Brown (Don Galloway), policewoman Eve Whitfield (Barbara Anderson) and ex-con Mark Sanger (Don Mitchell). Set during the turbulent 1960s, Emmy-winning “Ironside” confronted the hottest issues of its time – civil rights, drugs, hippies, rock ’n’ roll – topped the ratings while on NBC from 1967 to 1975, and gave television its first disabled hero. The ground-breaking inaugural season boasts original music by Quincy Jones and an array of guest stars including Jack Lord (Dr. No and Hawaii Five-O), Susan Saint James (Kate & Allie), David Carradine (Kung Fu and Kill Bill) and Gary Collins (Airport).
The 8-disc DVD set includes all 28 original episodes, as well as the made-for-TV movie that started it all. Look for it in stores starting April 24 for $59.98.
