Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season, the buddy cop duo based on the hit movie franchise, will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD on 25th September 2017 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
The 18-episode action series takes viewers on a thrill ride filled with comedy, action and heart. Lethal Weapon tells the story of Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, A Walk to Remember), a slightly unbalanced former Navy SEAL who teams up with veteran detective Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans, My Wife and Kids) on the Los Angeles police force.
The series introduces these two polar opposites: Riggs a volatile former Navy SEAL-turned-detective out of El Paso, Texas and Murtaugh, a seasoned, by-the-book detective cautiously returning to the LAPD despite his wife Trish’s (Keesha Sharp) objections following a heart attack which nearly killed him. Meanwhile Riggs has his own demons after the tragic deaths of his wife and unborn son. Sanctioned to mandatory sessions with the police department’s psychologist, Dr. Cahill (Jordana Brewster) things become more complicated for Riggs, when the two develop feelings for each other.
Watch the first trailer for the Lethal Weapon TV series below:
Whilst the partnership between Murtaugh and Riggs seems doomed from the start, the dynamic is crazy enough that it just might work. The question remains… can the two of them work together to protect the crime-ridden streets of Los Angeles, or will Riggs get the two of them killed first?
The series also stars Kevin Rahm (Desperate Housewives, Madam Secretary), Chandler Kinney (The Haunted Hathaways, American Horror Story), Dante Brown (Mr. Robinson, Shameless), Johnathan Fernandez (Girls, Good Medicine) and Michelle Mitchenor (Chi-Raq, Black Boots).
The release will be rated 15 in the UK and the 18-episodes have a combined runtime of 792 minutes. Bonus features on the release include a featurette, extended pilot episode, 22 deleted scenes and a gag reel.
