"The Shield redefined cable television and paved the way for a new level of hard-hitting shows that followed," says J.W. Starrett, Director of Product Development for Mill Creek Entertainment. "Getting the cast and crew back together 10 years after the final episode aired gives some really interesting insight and fascinating stories about their experience working on the show." Additional special features will be included from previous DVD releases, as well as new features currently in development. A complete listing will be announced in the coming weeks.
