The A Team, Knight Rider and Columbo Season 4 in September

Universal Playback have announced the Season 4 DVD releases of The A Team, Knight Rider and Columbo on 18th September 2006.

Press releases follow the artwork below.

"Knight Rider! A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist: Michael Knight — a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law."

This opening narration combined with the appeal of leading light Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff), the full throttle excitement of Michael and his automotive buddy K.I.T.T. captured the hearts and minds of the nation in what was one of the most popular action shows of the 80s.

For one last time you can catch Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff) and K.I.T.T (Knight Industries Two Thousand), the futuristic, computerised car, on DVD as they return for their fourth and final season.

The action packed, heart-pounding episodes feature more thrills and a host of high speed car chases, kidnappings and hair raising stunts in the last of their supercharged adventures together, with electrifying guest performances by Janine Turner, Lance Burton and Shelly Berman.

Season Four begins with the introduction of a new, vamped up K.I.T.T car after a ‘run in’ with an armoured truck in the first episode. Michael and his companion go undercover to prevent a deadly toxin from leaving the country in episode six, and thrill the viewer in an ultimate showdown against a wall of hot molten lava in the later part of the season. Never lacking in exhilarating assignments, even Michael's birthday break is interrupted when he is appointed to find a stolen hi-tech hovercraft prototype before a black market arms dealer can ship it out of the country.
The affection between man and car is ever more poignant as the Knight Rider legend concludes with this bittersweet season. The enduring popularity of the show has been the cornerstone of David Hasselhoff’s success, and will always be an old favourite to die hard fans, as well as a captivating experience for any new viewer.

DVD features include a special '80s TV flashback featurette and K.I.T.T. Blueprints. With exhilarating performances, the traffic-stopping episodes will leave you hanging off the edge of your seats and hooting your horns for more. Gear up for the final adventures - you won't want to miss a minute of the action!
