Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell star as The Defenders in this short-lived series set in Las Vegas.

Nick Morelli (Belushi) and Pete Kaczmarek (O'Connell) are the local go-to guys with an eclectic client list, who are still looking to hit their own jackpot. While Lady Luck shines on their legal careers, the partners have their hands full when it comes to their personal lives. With Pete busy cruising the Vegas Strip for his latest romantic conquest, Nick is focused on repairing a fractured marriage to his estranged wife and remaining present in the life of their young son.

The Defenders: The Complete Series (and labeled as "The DVD Edition") is available on DVD and iTunes (click on the icons above for more details), and consists of 18 episodes that originally aired on CBS from during the 2010/2011 television season.

The crisis, revelation and heartbreak of some of Detroit's finest are on display as a group of inner city police agree to have their days filmed by a documentary crew in Detroit 1-8-7, a highly praised though low rated crime drama that lasted just one season on ABC.

Leading the officers is Lieutenant Maureen Mason (Aisha Hinds), a single mother struggling to balance her work and home lives. New partners Louis Fitch (Michael Imperioli) and Damon Washington (Jon Michael Hill) are paired for their knowledge of the city and heroism on the job. But homicide work is never easy, and these cops are soon tested by the crime-ridden city in which they live.

Detroit 1-8-7: Season One is available on DVD and iTunes (click on the icons above for more details), and consists of 18 episodes that originally aired from September 2010 through March 2011. (We think the producers are optimistic that the series may be picked up by another network at some point, hence the "Season One" designation.)
