La Femme Nikita - The Complete First Season:

The fatal femme you can't take your eyes from.

Top secret. Eyes only. Enclosed in 22-episode detail is information about Section One, the deep-cover organization whose mission is to stop the terrorists who elude other ops agencies. Mistakes are not an option for the operatives of this clandestine group - even for a novice agent named Nikita.

The entire First Season of the fiery five-year series from 24 co-creators Robert Cochran and Joel Surnow unfolds in this DVD collection including a must see Bonus Features Portfolio. Peta Wilson (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) portrays Nikita, framed for murder... but given a way out by becoming a Section One operative codenamed Jospehine. She's dressed to kill.
