TV Shows On DVD reports that the Canadian spy sitcom InSecurity will hit DVD in Canada on November 8, courtesy of eOne Entertainment. With all apologies to my readers to the North, all I can think of every time I hear about a Canadian spy series like this one or the drama Intelligence is James Coburn's great delivery in The President's Analyst of the line, "Canadian spies?!" But that doesn't mean that we can't take Canadian spies seriously. Intelligence does that quite well, in fact. InSecurity, however, doesn't want you to take its spies seriously. Here's how the distributor describes the show:
InSecurity is an action comedy about the men and women of the fictional National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) who keep the nation safe...ish. Each week special agent Alex Cranston and her team of espionage misfits take on a mission vital to national security. They go where others can't go. They do what others won't do. And they screw up in ways that can only be described as world class. But like all great spy heroes, Alex and her NISA team get the bad guys and make Canada a safer place. Just not always on purpose.InSecurity: Season 1 will retail for CA$39.99, but it's available to pre-order at a discount from Amazon.ca. Even so, the price seems a bit steep for satisfying my curiosity about a series that garnered some decidedly iffy reviews, but as it's unlikely to ever get an American release, I probably will end up importing the Canadian disc at some point, as I'd like to judge this show for myself. InSecurity has already been greenlit for a second season, which airs on CBC this fall.
