By admin Published: August 14, 2009

Here's TNT's announcement re "Grace":

TNT will conclude the fascinating journey of Oklahoma City Police Det. Grace Hanadarko in 2010, when the network’s groundbreaking original series SAVING GRACE will come to an end. SAVING GRACE will wrap up with a nine-episode run planned for next summer. The provocative drama stars Oscar® winner Holly Hunter (The Piano), who this year received the second of two consecutive Emmy® nominations for her no-holds-barred performance. Hunter also serves as executive producer of SAVING GRACE, along with show creator Nancy Miller (Any Day Now), Gary A. Randall (Any Day Now, Leaving L.A.) and Artie Mandelberg (Leaving L.A., Mr. & Mrs. Smith). For its current summer run, which ends Tuesday, Aug. 18, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), the show has averaged more than 3.5 million viewers and ranks first in its time period among viewers, households, adults 25-54 and women 25-54.

“Since SAVING GRACE began in 2007, the series has both challenged and entertained viewers in ways few other shows on television ever dare,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “The show’s continued success is thanks to the amazing talents of Holly Hunter and Nancy Miller, along with a tremendous ensemble cast and a highly skilled production team. They have taken us on a unique journey, and we look forward to seeing where it will ultimately lead.”

And here's the skinny on "Harper's":

Television's sexiest and scariest murder-mystery, HARPER'S ISLAND: THE DVD EDITION, makes its chilling DVD debut as a four-disc set on September 8 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment.

Featuring all 13 episodes, the "hugely enjoyable" (Newsday) HARPER'S ISLAND follows a group of family and friends who travel to a secluded island off the coast of Seattle for a destination wedding. As the festivities begin, friendships are tested and secrets are exposed as things turn deadly and a murderer claims victims one by one - transforming the wedding week of fun and celebration into a horrific struggle for survival. Led by a "young and sexy" (New York Magazine) cast including Elaine Cassidy, Christopher Gorham and Katie Cassidy, the serial killer claims a life in each episode, making every person a suspect, from the wedding party to the island locals. The end answers every question, only a few survive and the murderer is revealed in the shockingly suspenseful conclusion.

HARPER'S ISLAND: THE DVD EDITION is jam-packed with loads of killer bonus features including Audio Commentaries by the cast and producers on four fundamental episodes, more than 15 Deleted Scenes, 90 minutes of Harper's Globe Webisodes which were originally created for the web site, Easter Eggs, six CBS Network on-air promos and nearly an hour of four all-new Featurettes explaining how the show came together and how the cast found out each week if they were going to be the next victim.

HARPER'S ISLAND: THE DVD EDITION is a four-disc set presented in 16 x 9 and English 5.1. The DVD is not rated in the U.S and rated 14A in Canada with a total running time of approximately 9 hours. HARPER'S ISLAND: THE DVD EDITION will be available for the suggested retail price of $46.99 US and $54.99 CAN.
