Southland: The Complete First Season - DVD Giveaway








Being a 9-1-1 dispatcher for six years now, I'm drawn to shows that involve public and safety officials. Fellow co-workers have sang praises of Southland. I've just recently started watching the first season and it's perked my attention. I'm not completely caught up on the current full episodes, but it is a show that I now make an effort to watch when I'm able to. It's packed with drama and action.












From Emmy Award winners John Wells, Ann Biderman and Chris Chulack comes a raw and authentic look at a police unit in Los Angeles. From the beaches of Malibu to the streets of East Los Angeles, "Southland" is a fast-moving drama that will take viewers inside the lives of cops, criminals, victims and their families.

Michael Cudlitz (A River Runs Through It) plays John Cooper, a seasoned Los Angeles cop, assigned to train young rookie Ben Sherman (The O.C.). Cooper's honest, no-nonsense approach to the job leaves Sherman questioning whether or not he has what it takes to become a police offier.

Cudlitz and McKenzie are joined by other cast members, including Regina King (Jerry Maguire), who plays Detective Lydia Adams. Adams lives with and is the primary caregiver of her mother. Her partner, Detective Russell Clarke (Boiler Room) is an unhappily married father of three. Michael McGrady (The Thin Red Line) plays Detective Daniel "Sal" Salinger. Sal oversees fellow gang detectives Nate Moretta (Ugly Betty) and Sammy Bryant (Alpha Dog). Arija Bareikis (Crossing Jordan) plays patrol officer Chickie Brown, a single mom who dreams of being the first woman accepted into SWAT.

I have NOT seen Southland yet- but want to! Both me and my husband are into these types of shows. We have a little one at home so its hard to watch shows when you want to- this would be a great way for us to get into it and be able to watch as we can

I just started watching Southland this season. What I like about Southland is that it is fast paced and has different things going on in between the main storyline.

I saw a couple but then didn't have time. It seemed like a different sort of cop show.

I've heard and seen teasers for this show, but never really watched it myself-I'm big into police/crime dramas, so this definitely sounds like something I would give a watch :)

Thank you for this opportunity!
