DVD - La Femme Nikita
Femme Fatal Nikita uncovers the truth behind her recruitment to Section One
The October 17 release of La Femme Nikita: The Complete Fifth Season
from Warner Home Video
marks the final DVD set of this popular action TV series. In this final season, beautiful and deadly Nikita - wrongly accused of murder and sentenced to life in prison only to be enlisted as a top secret agent by a clandestine government organization known as Section One - uncovers the mole inside Section One and also discovers why she was enlisted as an assassin. The three-disc collector’s set contains all final eight episodes from the fifth season of this cult hit TV show plus never-before-seen a bonus featurette and unaired scenes.
"The successful action franchise La Femme Nikita concludes with the DVD release of its fifth and final season,” says Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV Marketing. "We believe that this DVD release has an immense appeal to fans of action series as it was produced and written by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran, the creators of the highly popular TV show 24.
Based on the characters created for Luc Besson’s film of the same name, La Femme Nikita was rated as the number-one drama for adults on USA network during its five year run. From acclaimed producers/writers Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran (currently working on TV’s hit action drama 24), the sleek, chic and powerful adventures of the agent codenamed Josephine conclude in this fifth and final season of the intrigued-filled series La Femme Nikita that stars Peta Wilson (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) in the provocative title role.
La Femme Nikita has an intruiging and upstirring main title, written by Mark Snow, who uses not only electronic music but also rousing sound effects to create a thrilling atmosphere. The main title has only been released on a TVT Records song album and on a compilation album as a dance remix by John Beal.
The music of the episodes is by Sean Callery, who is also responsable for the music in the success series 24 and the popular TV series Sheena. The music in La Femme Nikita is partly electronical, partly orchestral with electronic elements. It adds an extra dimension to the tension of the scenes. Sean Callery's music for La Femme Nikita has never seen a CD release, besides a limited composer promo, and that's a pity.
Release date: October 17, 2006.
