The Glades on A&E which is well written, superbly acted AND meets my handsome leading man requirement! Aussie actors have a soft spot in my heart and Matt Passmore does not disappoint.
The Glades also stars Kiele Sanchez ("Lost," "Samantha Who?"), Carlos Gómez ("Shark," "Sleeper Cell") and Michelle Hurd ("Law & Order SVU," "Gossip Girl"). It is also executive produced by Clifton Campbell the producer of 21 Jump Street (aka ultimate hottie detective pioneer).
Here's the official Press Release for the Season 1 DVD Release. Once I'm done drooling over the video clips for the second season I'll post the Refresher Guide to get you caught up on all the leading characters and Season 1 Memorable Moments.
A&E NETWORK’S MOST WATCHED PROGRAM
The Complete First Season Comes to DVD on June 14
This season’s most intriguing new series comes to DVD on June 14 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. In THE GLADES: The Complete First Season, fans and new viewers alike will experience the gripping mystery, complex characters and the wry humor that is “par for the course” in A&E Network’s highest rated original series.
Recently renewed for its second season, THE GLADES stars Australian actor Matt Passmore as Jim Longworth, an attractive, brilliant, yet hard to get along with homicide detective from Chicago who is forced into exile after being wrongfully accused of sleeping with his former captain’s wife. Longworth relocates to the sleepy, middle-of-nowhere town of Palm Glade, Florida, where the sunshine and golf are plentiful and crime is seemingly at a minimum. But this town outside the Florida Everglades isn’t quite as idyllic as he thought, as he finds people keep turning up murdered. Each case pulls Longworth off the golf course and reluctantly into his element as one of the sharpest homicide detectives in the field.
THE GLADES: The Complete First Season DVD is loaded with exclusive special features including unaired deleted scenes, gag reel, behind-the-scenes footage, featurettes, director and cast commentaries.
“THE GLADES” is produced by Fox Television Studios for A&E Network. The series executive producer is Clifton Campbell ("White Collar," "Profiler," "21 Jump Street") for Innuendo Productions and Gary Randall ("Saving Grace") for Grand Productions, Inc. The series creator is Clifton Campbell.
