The short-lived sci-fi/superhero televison show M.A.N.T.I.S. is now coming to DVD, according to a report on TVShowsOnDVD.com. Image Entertainment will be releasing the series on June 10, 2008.
Here is the official description from Image Entertainment:
From the creators of The Evil Dead
and Army Of Darkness
comes the crime-fighting saga that beats them all! Using a newly-invented metal exoskeleton which provides superhuman abilities, wheelchair-bound Dr. Miles Hawkins (Alias' Carl Lumbly) embarks on a quest to rid his city of the ever-growing plague of crime terrorizing its citizens. Also starring Bobby Hosea (Independence Day) and Gina Torres (Angel, Firefly, Serenity), this action-packed series broke new ground with television's first African-American superhero and became an instant cult favorite, now available complete for the first time on DVD!
M.A.N.T.I.S. originally aired on the Fox Network in 1994, and was later replayed (including two episodes that were never aired on Fox) on the Sci-Fi Channel. Sam Raimi was the executive producer for the show, nearly ten years before he would get behind the director's chair for Spider-Man.
