Anchor Bay has announced it will release the all-star comedy-thriller BREATHLESS on Blu-ray and DVD on August 14th. Head inside for the details.
Lorna (Gina Gershon, Showgirls, P.S. I Love You) is a strong-willed Texas woman who’s had enough of her untrustworthy husband Dale’s (Val Kilmer, Top Gun, Batman Forever) criminal acts and lack of husbandry. Fed up, she enlists the help of her old friend, Tiny (Kelli Giddish, NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), to help her figure out what to do with Dale after his latest double-cross involving the theft of $100,000 from a bank.
As the girls brainstorm for a “neat” solution, they medicate themselves with only the best of prescriptions – Tennessee whiskey – which leads them to even bigger problems. When Sheriff Cooley (Ray Liotta, Goodfellas, Hannibal) inconveniently enters the conundrum, the story evolves into a tale of revenge and survival that resolves in true Texas fashion: bold and ruthless.
Breathless is co-written, directed and edited by Jesse Baget and co-written by Stefania Moscato. Mark Holder, Danny Roth and Christine Holder produced, with Nadine De Barros and Nicolas Chartier as executive producers. Music by Jermaine Stegall, Bill Otto is Director of Photography and Nathan Lay is Production Designer.

Giddish says the multitude of changes to the series on and off screen aided her introduction to the show. ”There was a lot of new people around,” she says. ”The whole show got a new treatment.” When Giddish won the role last year, she was in Los Angeles, working on a telemovie and living in a three-bedroom house on a one-acre block. So she upped her life (along with her dog Franny) and moved into a Manhattan apartment.
Giddish first encountered new show-runner Leight as a teenager at a playwright conference.
”I met him when I was 18 and kept up with his work since,” she says. ”I was also in Criminal Intent as a guest when he ran that show. He brings smart writing and he’s not afraid of changing something. He’s very malleable and into listening to the actors.”
Giddish is clearly no shrinking violet. Still, most of the cast have worked together for more than a decade, forming close bonds that are initially intimidating for an outsider.
”When I first got in, more than anything else, it was just a challenge,” she says. ”I like being the new kid on the block. I also had Danny as the other new guy. I knew they were looking at Christopher [Meloni] leaving and they wanted new people.” Meloni’s departure has been treated respectfully by the writers. ”I do like how Danny and I were introduced to the squad room and were made to earn our keep,” she says. ”They have not underestimated the audience. There’s an empty desk in the squad room where Stabler sat. He was on the show for over a decade.”
Giddish has frequently been partnered on-screen with the show’s most enigmatic star, the rapper Ice-T. And Ice Loves Coco, the reality show chronicling Ice and wife Coco’s bizarre life, is a talking point on-set.
”They’re together here a lot,” she says. ”Everything you see on their show in terms of how much they adore each other is true. Ice-T tells it straight.
”That’s a quality you rarely find in this business.”

hotos of stars without makeup are a guilty pleasure for anyone who doesn’t have a beauty team. But every so often, an actress looks terrific naturally.
Kelli Giddish of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” airing Wednesdays on NBC, manages to look stunning with her blonde hair pulled back and no makeup.
She’s in her dressing room at the Chelsea Piers on Manhattan’s far west side. Here, at the well-oiled machine that is this show in its 13th season, Giddish plays Detective Amanda Rollins, a transplant from Georgia, which is what Giddish is, albeit with a few stops in between.
She’s lived in Texas, California, Georgia and New York. After “Past Life” and “Chase,” which didn’t make full seasons, she says it’s a relief to be on a show with a solid foundation. Still, dealing with people’s basest depravities, as each episode does, takes its toll.
“My dreams have become so screwed up,” Giddish tells Zap2it. “Once you are educated about these things going on … .” her voice trails off.
