LOS ANGELES, CA - Genre-defying, upbeat and dazzling, "Glee" Season One Pilot: Director's Cut
arrives exclusively to Wal-Mart on DVD September 1 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Co-created, written and directed by Emmy Award nominee Ryan Murphy, the "Glee" Season One Pilot: Director's Cut
features the bonus song "Leaving On A Jet Plane" in addition to toe-tapping renditions of "Rehab" and "Don't Stop Believin'," and comes complete with an exclusive "Glee"
t-shirt with purchase. The DVD features a 14-minute sneak preview of the network Season Premiere, "Showmance," which airs Wednesday, Sept. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
The highly anticipated series follows WILL SCHUESTER (Matthew Morrison), a young optimistic teacher, who has offered to take on the Herculean task of restoring McKinley's Glee Club to its former glory with the help of fellow teacher and germaphobe EMMA PILLSBURY (Jayma Mays). It's a tall order when the brightest stars of the club include KURT (Chris Colfer), a nerdy soprano with a flair for the dramatic; MERCEDES (Amber Riley), a dynamic diva-in-training who refuses to sing back-up; ARTIE (Kevin McHale), a geeky guitarist who spends more time avoiding bullies than chasing girls; and TINA (Jenna Ushkowitz), an awkward girl who needs to suppress her stutter before she can take center stage.
Will's only hope lies with two true talents: RACHEL BERRY (Lea Michele), a perfectionist firecracker who is convinced that show choir is her ticket to stardom; and FINN HUDSON (Cory Monteith), the popular high school quarterback with movie star looks and a Motown voice who must protect his reputation with his holier-than-thou girlfriend and head cheerleader, QUINN (Dianna Agron), and his arrogant football teammate, PUCK (Mark Salling).
Driven by his secret past, Will is determined to do whatever it takes to make Glee great again, even though everyone around him thinks he's nuts. He's out to prove them all wrong - from his tough-as-nails wife TERRI SCHUESTER (Jessalyn Gilsig) to McKinley's scheming cheerleading coach SUE SYLVESTER (Jane Lynch) to an über-hip world that thinks jazz hands and sequined tuxedos litter the road to infamy rather than pave the way to Hollywood dreams.
The DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $5.00 exclusively at Wal-Mart. With a special offer of owning a Glee
t-shirt offered via mail-in order or online at Walmart.com.
