From legendary television producer Steven Bochco (Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue) and acclaimed writer-director Chris Gerolmo (Citizen X, "Mississippi Burning") comes the ground-breaking dramatic war series Over There, debuting on DVD in its entirety on March 21, 2006 from Fox Home Entertainment. The first scripted TV series set in a current, ongoing war involving U.S. troops, Over There follows the struggles of seven American soldiers stationed in Iraq on their first tour of duty, exploring the effects of war on soldiers on the front lines, as well as on their families back home. Avoiding the politics of the war itself, the series instead focuses on the physical, emotional and cultural challenges faced by the young men and women forced to fight it.

One of the year's most critically-acclaimed television series, praised around the country as "powerful" (The New York Times), "harrowing" (Entertainment Weekly), "gripping" (TV Guide) and "raw, relevant television destined to provoke debate" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer), Over There debuted to a total audience of 5.8 million viewers, ranking the show in the top 10 for highest ever basic cable series premiere.
The ensemble cast includes Josh Henderson (Girl Next Door), Luke MacFarlane (Kinsey), Erik Palladino ("ER"), Keith Robinson ("American Dreams"), Kirk "Sticky" Jones ("The Shield"), Omid Abtahi ("24"), Sprague Grayden ("Six Feet Under"), Brigid Brannagh ("CSI"), Lombardo Boyar ("The Bernie Mac Show"), Lizette Carrion ("NYPD Blue") and Nicki Aycox (Providence).
Gritty, intense, evocative and emotional, Over There takes you to the front lines of battle and explores the effects of war on a U.S. Army unit sent to Iraq on their first tour of duty, as well as the equally powerful effects felt at home by their families and loved one. A must-see show for all Americans, Over There is not about politics or policies - it's a true-to-life depiction of our courageous soldiers, the everyday heroes who fight for freedom under extraordinary conditions.
