Prime Suspect Series 1

Silver Spring, MD -- Starring Oscar(R) and Emmy(R) winner Helen Mirren in her iconic and groundbreaking television role, Prime Suspect: Series 1 arrives to DVD from Acorn Media on August 23, 2011. Dame Helen Mirren (The Queen) delivers a riveting performance as Detective Jane Tennison in this revolutionary police drama broadcast on PBS to universal acclaim and more than 20 major international awards, including seven Emmys(R) (Outstanding Miniseries and Outstanding Actress), eight BAFTAs, and a Peabody. The ITV series aired for seven series (1991-93, 1995-96, 2003, and 2006). A new American version starring Maria Bello (A History of Violence) premieres on September 22, 2011 on NBC. Series 1 finds the skilled Tennison grappling with her first major murder investigation, determined to prove herself worthy of her male colleagues' respect ($24.99, www.AcornOnline.com). Acorn Media previously released Prime Suspect: The Complete Collection in September 2010 (DVD 9-vol. boxed set, $124.99) and will simultaneously release Series 2 in an individual season set on August 23, 2011 ($24.99).

Seen on Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery! from the 1990s to the present and created by crime writer Lynda La Plante (Trial & Retribution, The Commander), Prime Suspect featured some of Britain's biggest stars, including Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient), Tom Wilkinson (Michael Clayton) and Zoe Wanamaker (Poirot) in Series 1.

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).

In the opening series, DCI Tennison seizes the opportunity to head a murder investigation--something she should have done long ago, had she not been passed over by her male superiors time and again. With a suspect already identified and her own team openly hostile, she uncovers errors and conflicting facts that point to a cover-up within the force. Is this a single murder or the latest act of a serial killer? Tennison refuses to back off the investigation.
