“DEA: Detroit” DVD is a two-disc set featuring all six uncensored episodes and 276 minutes of crime-fighting action and includes the bonus material of a full-length episode of Spike TV’s “Real Vice Cops: Uncut.”

Spike TV was given exclusive access to follow a group of Special Agents and Task Force Officers in the DEA Detroit division as they risked their lives daily in the ongoing battle against illegal drugs. The series follows DEA Special Agents as they work cases ranging from street level dealers all the way up to international drug traffickers.

“DEA: Detroit” underscores the danger Special Agents experience on a daily basis in order to do their jobs. Witness first-hand what it is like for DEA Special Agents to go out on undercover missions and pose as drug dealers. Viewers are there when the DEA breaks down doors as Special Agents conduct drug raids on stash houses that put their lives directly in the line of fire. “DEA: Detroit” takes a look at the complex relationship that DEA Special Agents have with informants, revealing the strange kinship they share with these criminals who see themselves not as arch enemies, but rather as opponents in “the game” of the illegal drug trade.
