(April 7, 2009 – Burbank, CA) –The real heroes that keep New York City and its residents safe are back for their sophomore season. Working the 3-11 p.m. shift (known as the “third watch”), these ordinary people perform extraordinary feats of bravery on a daily basis. Featuring an all-star cast including Bobby Cannavale, Eddie Cibrian, Michael Beach, and Kim Raver, “Third Watch” portrays the best – and sometimes the worst – of “the city’s finest.” Nine years after the second season’s TV debut, Warner Home Video is releasing the highly anticipated “Third Watch: The Complete Second Season” DVD on July 7, 2009 for $59.98. Order due date is June 2, 2009. Created by John Wells (“ER,” “The West Wing”) and Edward Allen Bernero (“Criminal Minds”), “Third Watch: The Complete Second Season” is an Emmy® and Peabody® Award winning series that follows professional rescuers and first responders as they take on crime, medical emergencies, and blazing buildings in the largest city in America. Police, firefighters and paramedics all work together as the show explores the intricacies of their relationships on the streets, in the station, and back at home. Episodes include situations ranging from dangerous (tracking a sniper who targets cops) to playful (a football match between fire departments), to the mundane (a frequent 911 dialer). These heroes risk their lives every day so we can sleep soundly, knowing that we’re protected by the “third watch.” “‘Third Watch: The Complete Second Season’ contains 22 action-packed episodes that focus on the unsung heroes of New York City,” said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV & Special Interest Marketing. “After the recent event on the Hudson, the world is increasingly fascinated by these first responders, and Warner Home Video is proud to present the second season on DVD.” About Warner Home Video With operations in 90 international territories Warner Home Video, a Warner Bros.
