More about Santuary: The Complete First Season

This September, E1 entertainment unleashes your worst nightmares with the sci-fi original series Sanctuary, one of the most talked about and groundbreaking new programs to air in 2008. Following the adventures of the beautiful, enigmatic scientist Dr. Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping, Stargate SG-1), who, along with her Sanctuary Team, hold the secrets and protects the strange and terrifying creatures that silently hide amongst us, Sanctuary blazed an innovative trail across the TV landscape as the very first series to shoot extensively on green screen, using virtual sets and extraordinary visual effects. And, on September 15th, those who seek out things that go bump in the night and genre fans of all walks will thrill to Sanctuary: The Complete First Season, which makes its DVD debut on a 4-disc set featuring all 13 exhilarating season one episodes.

The four disc set, which is presented in 16×9 anamorphic widescreen and 5.1 surround sound, also proves a sanctuary for exclusive extras and bonus programming certain to add to the otherworldly viewing experience, including: audio commentaries with star and producer Amanda Tapping and creator Damian Kindler (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis) on each episode; a monstrously good 2-part webisode mini-series, never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage, a photo gallery and a sneak peak at Season Two, which premieres in October 2009.

The world is full of nature’s mistakes and triumphs, and few understand that as well as Dr. Helen Magnus. The daughter of the most brilliant and controversial medical researcher of Victorian England, the mysterious doctor has devoted her life – one that happens to have lasted for over 150 years – to rescuing “abnormals” – those who’ve been dismissed as monstrous figments of our imaginations. For over a century, she has run The Sanctuary, a place where she is able to track, protect and learn from the extraordinary and paranormal creatures that inhabit our world, as well as delve into the rich evolution and diversity of life. Along with her new recruit, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne, American Psycho II, The Skulls II), her quirky tech wiz Henry (Ryan Robbins) and her fearless daughter Ashley (Emilie Ullerup), the Sanctuary Team must face their darkest fears and their worst nightmares in order to provide a safe haven for the monsters that lurk in the shadows.
