The Complete 1st Season

The Dresden Files - Recent SciFi Channel Series Comes to DVD in August

Includes UnAired Pilot and other Extras

Posted by David Lambert
    Based on Jim Butcher's best-selling novels, The Dresden Files tells the story of Harry Dresden (Paul Blackthorne), a regular-guy private detective with extraordinary abilities. While most people see assaults, kidnappings or murders as the work of people with a depraved indifference for human pain, Harry is as likely as not to see the work of supernatural villains.

    That's because he's a wizard. The real thing (and the only one listed in the Chicago phone directory). Whether consulting for the police on seemingly inexplicable crimes or following his own cases, he battles dark forces with a wry sense of humor.
If you haven't been watching The Dresden Files, which debuted this past January on The SciFi Channel (and is also available for download at iTunes), then you'll want the above studio description to understand what's going on in this cool new series. And, according to the folks at the fansite, Lionsgate will be bringing out The Dresden Files - The Complete 1st Season on August 7th. They also list the following extras and specs:
  • Original pilot episode and specially produced featurettes
  • Audio Commentary
  • A "Making of" Featurette
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Widescreen 1.78:1
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1
  • 530 minutes for 12 episodes (running time doesn't count the bonus unaired pilot)
  • 3-DVD set for $39.98 SRP
  • Closed Captioned for the Hearing Impaired
Executive Producer Robert Hewitt Wolfe confirms that he did DVD commentaries for "Rules of Engagement" and "Things That Go Bump" with show star Paul Blackthorne and Director Michael Grossman, who directed those two specific episodes (and is next busy with the Grey's Anatomy spin-off, Private Practice).

Our thanks to readers who wrote in with info about this release, including Jaime Maynard, Joseph Loiacono and "Ethan," who found this next bit of info and got his e-mail to us just a few minutes before I stumbled across it myself: already has a pre-release listing for this package, and shows the front cover art. Since it's DVDEmpire, they've put the "copyrighted material" watermark stamp on this, but we'll show this art off to you despite that marring:
