One of this season’s most intriguing and original new series is coming to DVD for the first time from Walt Disney Studios. Eli Stone: The Complete First Season debuts on DVD September 2, 2008 in a four-disc DVD featuring extended episodes, deleted scenes and behind the scenes revelations about the critically-acclaimed freshman series.
The jury’s still out on whether San Francisco attorney Eli Stone is a modern day prophet or simply suffering from a brain aneurysm that causes wild hallucinations. Judged by audiences and critics alike to be one of the quirkiest, most original comedic dramas on television, Eli Stone: The Complete First Season includes all 13 surprising and inspiring one-hour episodes of the show that proves it’s never too late to be one of the good guys.
A corporate litigator with a reputation for ruthlessness, Eli Stone is transformed from ambitious go-getter to reluctant do-gooder when a vision of George Michael singing Faith inspires him to re-examine his life. At first, skeptical of his powers of prophecy, his visions eventually remind him of the destiny his father once predicted for him: You’re going to help people.
Jonny Lee Miller (Aeon Flux, Trainspotting) stars as Eli Stone, heading up an acclaimed cast that includes Victor Garber (Alias), Natasha Henstridge (Commander in Chief, Species), James Saito ( The Devil’s Advocate, The Thomas Crown Affair), Julie Gonzalo (Veronica Mars), Loretta Devine (Grey’s Anatomy, Boston Public), Sam Jaeger (Catch and Release) and Laura Benanti (Take the Lead).
