BURBANK, CA (February 25, 2015) – Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) brings the third season of one of cable television’s most powerful police dramas to DVD, with the release of Major Crimes: The Complete Third Season. Available in stores May 26, 2015, this release features all 19 of the series’ season three episodes plus never-before-seen unaired scenes and gag reel. The show, which spun off the critically acclaimed, award-winning The Closer, has quickly established itself as one of basic cable’s top programs. During season three, Major Crimes ranked as TNT’s #2 show and as the # 3 scripted drama on basic cable television *. The release of Major Crimes: The Complete Third Season is timed to the show’s fourth season premiere on TNT. The four-disc DVD set will retail for $59.98 SRP. Order due date has been set for April 21, 2015.
The third gripping season of Major Crimes finds our favorite squad of detectives hard at work, as they continue to solve the division’s highest profile cases. The elite team is under the leadership of department head Captain Sharon Raydor, portrayed by Oscar® nominee Mary McDonnell (Dances with Wolves, Battlestar Galactica). The unit is comprised of Lieutenant Provenza (G.W. Bailey, The Closer, M*A*S*H, Police Academy), Lieutenant Andy Flynn (Tony Denison, The Closer, Crime Story), Lieutenant Mike Tao (Michael Paul Chan, The Closer, Arrested Development), Detective Julio Sanchez (Raymond Cruz, The Closer, Training Day), Detective Amy Sykes (Kearran Giovanni, One Life to Live), tech expert Buzz Watson (Phillip P. Keene, The Closer, The D.A.), Dr. Morales (Jonathan Del Arco, The Closer, Nip/Tuck), Assistant Chief Russell Taylor (Robert Gossett, The Closer, Arlington Road) and Deputy Chief Fritz Howard (recurring guest star Jon Tenney, The Closer, King & Maxwell).
Season three finds the unit involved in a series of startling and complex cases. The detectives investigate the death of a canine that inherited his deceased millionaire master’s fortune; a young runaway who is found murdered in a trash can; a woman who confesses to killing her rapist; a series of young girls who disappear from a nightclub; a father and two young kids who go missing and several other captivating mysteries. The third season also brings the return of homeless teen and material witness Rusty Beck (Graham Patrick Martin, The Closer, Two and a Half Men), who is taken in — and adopted — by Captain Raydor. It’s a thrilling season filled with intriguing cases and compelling stories about the lives of the officers and prosecutors who work together to rid the streets of Los Angeles of some its worst criminals.
“Major Crimes has quickly developed a devoted fan base. Fans of The Closer now have a spinoff that stands completely on its own. We’re delighted to release another exciting season of this exceptional series on DVD,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Brand Management and Retail Marketing. She added, “Major Crimes keeps getting better and better with each season. Mary McDonnell in the lead is superb and the rest of the supporting cast is outstanding.”
NPR praised Major Crimes as “…good, solid television,” and Yahoo TV says, “[The] fact that Major Crimes can veer from the grim…to the gleeful…is due in great part to the diversity of the cast.”
Major Crimes is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company and Walking Entropy, Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television. The Closer’s James Duff, Greer Shephard, Michael M. Robin, Rick Wallace and Adam Belanoff serve as executive producers.
