Although the studio hasn't announced it yet, word has leaked out to our retail sources that Lionsgate Entertainment is preparing a new DVD release titled Will & Grace - The Best of Friends & Foes
. In addition to the hilarious regular cast, the disc will focus on the episodes which had the special celebrity guest appearances throughout the various seasons of the show. Here's the description of it, which was provided to our sources by the studio:
Watch as A-list Hollywood celebrities make their mark on the Will & Grace series. This collection features the favorite and most unforgettable guest stars including Jennifer Lopez, Kevin Bacon, Glenn Close, Britney Spears, Matt Damon and more!
The exact number of episodes and discs is unknown, as is the pricing. Running time, however, is 352 minutes long, so we can make our guesses based on that. In addition, there will be supplements such as Audio commentaries with Cast and Crew, and Themed Featurettes. It's unknown whether any of this bonus material is brand-new for this release, or the same extras that were seen on the previously-released season sets.
The release date is May 5th
. Video aspect ratio is not mentioned in the info our sources received, but it is expected to be full screen (as the season sets were). Audio is English 5.1, with English and Spanish subtitles. It is also close captioned for the hearing impaired. A separate "best-of" release, entitled "Will & Grace - The Best of Love & Marriage
," is also apparently in the works, but no info or release date has been provided for that DVD yet. Nor do we have cover art for The Best of Friends & Foes
, but stay tuned and we'll bring you updates about all of it just as soon as we can!
