The Beast - Season 1
Saturday 15th August 2009
Patrick Swayze (Ghost) is back and gunning for justice as Charles Barker, an unorthodox but effective FBI veteran in The Beast - Season 1. available on DVD for the first time from 17th August 2009, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Swayze makes his TV series debut and stars alongside Travis Fimmel (TV's Tarzan), Larry Gilliard Jr. (TV's The Wire), Lindsay Pulsipher (June and July) and Sticky Fingaz (In Too Deep) in this no-holds-barred crime drama. Featuring 13 pulse-pounding episodes, The Beast -Season 1 also boasts 13 behind-the-scenes featurettes.
Though considered by many - including rookie partner agent Ellis Dove (Travis Fimmel) - to be the best in the business, FBI undercover operative Charles Barker (Patrick Swayze) has a style that is nothing if not unorthodox. In pushing Dove to immerse himself more deeply into the characters they create, Barker makes it clear how the stresses and dangers of working undercover make normal relationships impossible.
As he and his mentor are tested by cases that pit them against ruthless drug lords, dangerous arms dealers, corrupt cops and deadly killers-for-hire, Dove also struggles with his own secret: he's being asked to cooperate with an FBI investigation of Barker, who's suspected of going rogue. And as Dove is pressured to become an informant, Barker launches his own investigation into a conspiracy within the Bureau that's protecting a secret cadre of agents operating outside the law.
