All six episodes featuring the Australian antihero will be coming to Blu-ray in a two-disc set.
In an early announcement to retailers, Acorn Media will be releasing 'Jack Irish: Season 1' on Blu-ray on July 26.
Guy Pearce delivers a magnificent performance as the wounded but charismatic Jack Irish. When Jack is contracted to find a man with a criminal past who is then killed in front of him, Jack suspects a set-up. The case spirals into a larger international conspiracy involving Muslim extremists and born-again Christians.
Meanwhile, Jack’s on-again, off-again girlfriend, journalist Linda Hillier (Marta Dusseldorp), leaves Melbourne to further her career as a foreign correspondent in Manila. Though the job is not exactly what she had planned, Linda quickly realizes she may be on to a big story. As their cases eventually intertwine, Jack and Linda’s reunion is tested by the arrival of Sarah Longmore (Claudia Karvan, The Secret Life of Us), a metal sculptor with connections.
Called “a terrific writer; sharp, funny and ambitious” by NPR’s Fresh Air from WHYY, crime writer Peter Temple has won the Ned Kelly Award five times as well as the Crime Writers’ Association’s Duncan Lawrie Dagger for best crime novel.
The 2-disc set include six episodes with lossless 5.1 audio and supplements include behind the scenes featurettes and a photo gallery.
