Overview
From producer Aaron Spelling (TV's "Charlies Angels" and "Starsky and Hutch") comes one of the toughest, action-packed crime-fighting shows of them all: S.W.A.T. Spun off from "The Rookies" and fueled by it's signature hit theme song, S.W.A.T. chronicled the convert missions of the LAPD's Special Weapons and Tactics unit, an elite five-man force tackling situations too dangerous for even the police to handle. The show introduced a new breed of hard-as-nails cops to audiences: Lt. Dan "Hondo" Harrelson (Steve Forrest, Spies Like Us, Mommie Dearest) Officer Jim Street (Robert Urich, TV's Vega$, Spencer for Hire), Sgt. "Deacan" Kay (Rod Perry), Officer Dominic Luca (Mark Shera, TV's Barnaby Jones), and Officer T.J. McCabe (James Coleman).

Now remastered and on DVD for the first time, relive all those tense showdowns and standoffs durring S.W.A.T.'s 13-episode debut season, as that infamous black van rolls around the mean streets of L.A., delivering justice the hard way.
