UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- July 20, 2005 -- Two trailblazing shows focusing on the joys and frustrations of everyday heroes, Emergency! and Adam-12, are coming to DVD for the first time August 23, 2005, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Brought to the screen by five-time Emmy´┐Ż nominee and "Dragnet" creator Jack Webb, Emergency! Season One and Adam-12: Season One helped set the stage for such contemporary dramas as "E.R." and "NYPD Blue" by depicting heroic emergency medical technicians, doctors and police officers who are ordinary people in extraordinary situations. Each title is available to own for just $39.98 SRP.

Emergency! Season One
One of the first series to show what goes on in the daily lives of fire department and hospital employees, Emergency! Season One stars Kevin Tighe and Randolph Mantooth as tireless Los Angeles emergency medical technicians Roy DeSoto and John Gage. The show co-stars singer-songwriter-actor Bobby Troup, his real-life wife actress-singer Julie London and Robert Fuller ("Wagon Train"). Guest stars include Tony Dow ("Leave it to Beaver"), Ronne Troup ("My Three Sons"), and Jeff Donnell ("The Amazing Spider-Man"). The two-disc set includes all 11 episodes with over 13 TV hours of content, including the powerful and original television movie, "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act," which launched this unforgettable series.

The first realistic portrayal of the life of an L.A. beat cop in the 1960s and 1970s, Adam-12 starred Martin Milner and Kent McCord as intrepid Officers Pete Malloy and Jim Reed. Guest stars include Karen Black (Nashville, The Great Gatsby), Barry Williams ("The Brady Bunch") and Harry Dean Stanton (The Green Mile; Paris, Texas). The two-disc set includes all 26 episodes of the debut season of the original series about the heroic boys in blue.


Emergency! Season One

Race to the scene alongside the heroic men of paramedic Squad 51 and the emergency staff of Rampart Hospital as they respond round-the-clock to L.A.'s most dire emergencies: from women in labor to an out-of-control epidemic. Kevin Tighe and Randolph Mantooth lead an acclaimed cast as two hard-working paramedics trying to deal with the daily crises of their job with wit, humor and bravery. Including the thrilling TV movie "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act," it's the gripping series that blazed the trail for all action series to come!

Adam-12: Season One

Cruise the streets of Los Angeles with the series that defined the modern police drama genre. Still mourning the death of his former partner, Officer Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) is teamed with rookie Officer Jim Reed (Kent McCord). Together they serve and protect the City of Angels as "Adam-12," their unit's radio call number. Watch as these brothers in blue struggle to manage the job's demands and frustrations, as they battle drug dealers, intervene in domestic disputes and pursue suspects in high-speed chases.
