Australian six NTSC/Region 0 DVD box set. Baywatch premiered in April 1989 and enjoyed a successful run throughout the '90s before coming to an end in 2001. The show took the role of the lifeguard and completely transformed it, adding adventure, excitement and sex appeal to an occupation that seemed an unlikely basis for a TV show. David Hasselhoff filled the lead role of Lt. Mitch Bucannon and while a bevy of curvaceous beauties stood by his side, including Pamela Anderson, who played CJ Parker for five seasons (debuting in Season Three), other notable names such as Erika Eleniak, Billy Warlock, John Allen Nelson and Australia's own Peter Phelps donned the infamous red swimsuit. Languages: English (Dolby Digital Stereo), Special Features: Interactive Menu, Multi-DVD Set, Scene Access.
