Kidnapped: NBC Cancelled Series Coming to DVD!

Kidnapped comes to DVD
When a teenage boy, Leo Cain (Will Denton), is kidnapped, his wealthy parents (Timothy Hutton, Dana Delaney) hire a former FBI agent turned “retrieval specialist” (Jeremy Sisto) to work outside the law while keeping the family’s secrets behind closed doors. Meanwhile, an FBI agent (Delroy Lindo) becomes embroiled in the case while investigating the disappearance of Leo’s driver Virgil (Mykelti Williamson), discovering a personal connection that ties the driver to the culprit suspected of orchestrating the crime. As the FBI and the investigator proceed with independent inquiries into Leo’s disappearance, they soon find themselves entangled in a dangerous game of manipulation and deceit where everyone is a suspect and no one is safe.

Kidnapped was one of the most upsetting and earliest cancellations of the 2006-2007 season. NBC cancelled the series after just three episodes and pulled it off the air after five. Millions of viewers were left wondering if young kidnap victim Leopold Cain would ever be returned.

Fortunately for many, NBC started releasing the remaining episodes online via their website. The quality left something to be desired but at least those with a high-speed connection could find out what happened. Unfortunately, many couldn’t. Until now.

Just a few months after the series was pulled from primetime, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that the complete Kidnapped series is coming to DVD. The three-disc set will contain all 13 nail-biting episodes of the series in anamorphic widescreen format with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. The extras will consist only of a “behind the scenes” featurette but many fans will simply be happy to be able to own the series and see it on their televisions. The DVDs will retail for $49.95 but it’s for available for pre-order right now from Amazon.com $37.49. TV Series Finale home page

    I don’t even remember the series “Kidnapped”! However, I watched the first season on Netflix and I cannot believe I missed it! IT WAS AWESOME! Like “The Event”, I cannot believe NBC actually cancelled that show! UNBELIEVABLE!

    Kidnapped was the best TV series made. It was full of twists, plots, turns and sheer edge of the seat excitement. I cannot believe it was cancelled. Whomever is making decisions at NBC is an idiot. 24 is boring compared. Still have not watched another NBC show since Kidnapped was cancelled … it’s now 2010.

    Good for NBC and Sony. I was lucky enough to see the whole series on the Internet. The price is ridiculous. $50 for 13 episodes? This should be a $19.95 series. $50 is what you pay for 22+ episodes, and a slew of extras.
