Joseph Wambaugh's 'Police Story' Will Be Out On DVD On September 6th
The web site iconvsicon.com reports that season one of Police Story, an outstanding police drama that aired on television during the 1970s, will be released on September 6th.
Created by Joseph Wambaugh (The Onion Field), ex-cop-turned-author, Police Story is an anthology series detailing the lives of LAPD officers in a collection of realistic and gritty accounts of what it meant to be a cop in 1970s Los Angeles. The series became the archetype for many critically acclaimed shows that followed, including Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue and Homicide: Life On The Street.
