Ordinary people with extraordinary abilities link a group of complete strangers that may determine the future of the world in the hit NBC drama "Heroes," the First Season of which will arrive on DVD and HD DVD August 28th from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
One of the breakout hits of this past season, "Heroes" nabbed the People's Choice Award for Favorite New Drama Series and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Drama Series, even before completing Season One.
The show features an excellent ensemble cast that includes Sendhil Ramamurthy, Milo Ventimiglia, Adrian Pasdar, Hayden Panettiere, Ali Larter, Noah Gray-Cabey, Leonard Roberts, Santiago Cabrera, Tawny Cypress, Greg Grunberg, Masi Oka, Jack Colman, James Kyson Lee, Zachary Quinto, Ashley Crow, Cristine Rose, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Eric Roberts and Malcolm McDowall.
For this popular series, creator Tim Kring has fashioned a complex new world full of hidden clues, breathtaking plot twists and suspense-filled conundrums in a fresh story about average people who are confronting the existence of inexplicable super powers.
Mohinder Suresh (Ramamurthy), a genetics professor from Chennai, picks up his late father's research and makes an astonishing discovery... a seemingly random group of people around the world are developing astonishing super powers.
From a drug-addicted artist (Cabrera), who paints the future and an ambitious politician (Pasdar) who can fly, to a New York cop who hears other people's thoughts (Grunberg) and a Japanese computer programmer (Oka) who can distort the space time continuum, these new "Heroes" seem to have a shared destiny.
The 7-Disc boxed set will be packed with bonus features, including five featurettes and over 50 deleted and extended scenes, plus a 73-minute version of the original series premiere that has never aired on television.
A complete list of special features follows after the jump.
