Tarzan (2003) is a TV series starring Australian actor and model Travis Fimmel, which presented a compelling modern day take on the story of the boy from the jungle being forced to confront life in the big city. At last, this series is available on DVD for a limited time only!
Detective Jane Porter (Sarah Wayne Callies) is a cop on the NYPD force that seemed to have everything together. She was dating another member of the force, Detective Michael Foster (Johnny Messner), living with her sister, Nicki (Leighton Meester), and walked the straight and narrow as a cop. She worked for Captain Jim Archer (Gary Chalk) and later for Lieutenant Scott Connor (Joe Grifasi.)
While investigating a disturbance, she meets John Clayton Jr. a.k.a. Tarzan (Travis Fimmel.) Twenty years ago, young John Clayton’s parents died in a plane crash and left him alone in the African jungle, where he grew up among apes and other wild animals. His billionaire uncle, Richard Clayton (Mitch Pileggi), the CEO of Greystoke Industries, tracks him down and, against his will, brings him back to his family’s home in New York City. Richard’s intentions for John don’t appear to be too nice...
Held against his will at his uncle's home, Tarzan escaped from Greystoke. Upon meeting Jane, he begins to follow her all over the city from her home to crime scenes, simultaneously helping her with her police cases.
