Winning this year's Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy® and widely praised as the best new comedy series on television, director Ron Howard's "ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT" SEASON ONE DVD COLLECTION makes its highly-anticipated debut on October 19, 2004 from Fox Home Entertainment. The series revolves around a man who must help his wildly eccentric family pick up the pieces after his wealthy father is arrested for shifty accounting practices. The half-hour show has received universal critical acclaim, most recently winning five Emmy awards including, Outstanding Comedy Series, Directing For A Comedy Series, Writing For A Comedy Series, Casting For A Comedy Series and Single-Camera Picture Editing, along with a Golden Globe nomination, the prestigious TV Land "Future Classic" award, the AFI Program of the Year (2003), the

Critics' Choice Award for Best Comedy and two TCA Awards for Outstanding New Program of the Year and Outstanding Comedy. The three-disc set includes all 21 episodes from Season One along with the series creator's original cut of the pilot episode, Ron Howard's sneak peek at Season Two, deleted scenes, featurettes, original songs, cast audition tapes, a blooper reel and more. The "ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT" SEASON ONE DVD COLLECTION is priced at $39.98U.S./$54.98 Canada.

In this critically acclaimed hit sitcom, you'll meet the suddenly penniless, and equally clueless, Bluth family. Accustomed to their wildly affluent lifestyle, they can't seem to grasp the fact that now the head of the family (Jeffrey Tambor, in an Emmy-nominated performance*) is in the slammer for shifty accounting practices — and he's loving every minute of it. Even worse, since the family assets have been frozen, they may actually have to go out and get jobs! The only one who understands the seriousness of their predicament is Michael (Jason Bateman), who realizes it's up to him to guide his eccentric family into this new chapter of their lives: Chapter 11.
