When a freak accident during an experimental space mission catapulted Astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder) across a thousand galaxies to an alien battlefield, a cult classic was born with the epic, adventure-filled TV series Farscape. The award-winning fan favorite show is about to blast off again on DVD courtesy of an agreement between A&E and The Jim Henson Company.
As the show marks its 10th Anniversary in November 2009, the treasure of the newly re-packaged DVD line will feature a Farscape home entertainment first: The Complete Series Megaset. Never before available in one package, A&E Home Entertainment brings together all four seasons with countless hours of absorbing bonus programming featuring multiple commentaries, interviews with cast and crew, behind-the-scenes featurettes and much more. Single season collector’s sets will also be released, offering genre fans the opportunity to sample this sci-fi classic.
To launch this highly-anticipated re-release, there will be a Farscape panel convening at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego. Executive producer Brian Henson, creator Rockne O’Bannon, and stars Ben Browder and Claudia Black will be in attendance to discuss their favorite moments from the series and the DVD re-release.
