Lost and forgotten in a garage in New Jersey for over 50 years, the Deadline TV series (1959-61), which dramatized stories drawn from actual newspaper headlines of the 1950's, has been rediscovered. These 39 programs remind us of a time when newspaper reporters were revered the guardians of truth and justice. Reporters are the first line of defense of the principles rooted in our Constitution and protected under the first amendment. They uphold everything that our civil society stands for. At a time when print news media is rapidly disappearing, and news reporters are being vilified as "enemies of the people," Deadline has emerged from hibernation and is making its home video debut. Starring Peter Falk, Diane Ladd, George Maharis, Robert Lansing, and many more, this anthology series is available now for the first time since it aired on prime-time TV…nearly 60 years ago!
