David James Elliott and Natasha Henstridge star

Debuting on DVD September 1 with Exclusive Bonus Features
Including New Featurettes & Deleted Scenes

CULVER CITY, CALIF. (June 29, 2009) - Experience the dark side of the moon when Impact, the gripping sci-fi miniseries, debuts on DVD debut September 1 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Natasha Henstridge (TV's "Eli Stone"), David James Elliot (TV's "JAG"), Academy Award Nominee James Cromwell (Best Supporting Actor, Babe, 1995 and W) and Steven Culp (TV's "Desperate Housewives") star in the galactic action-adventure which aired on ABC June 21 and 28 of this year. The DVD also includes two all-new featurettes - the Making of Impact and Creating Zero Gravity, a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the visual effects. Impact will be available for $24.96 SLP.

During the largest meteor shower in 10,000 years, a rogue asteroid collides with the moon, causing a huge explosion and sending moon fragments catapulting to Earth. Soon, unusual phenomena begin to unnerve the entire planet: cell phones are disrupted, the normal pattern of the tides shift and heavy objects like cars become temporarily weightless - all as the world's leading scientists uncover unsettling evidence that the moon's orbit may have been permanently altered. Even more frightening, they discover that the new orbit has put the Earth directly in the moon's path and there are only 39 days remaining until it crashes into the planet. Now it's up to a small group of experts, cheered on by all nations of the world, to embark on a mission to the moon to try to prevent the deadly impact and save the planet from destruction.

DVD Special Features:
  • All-New Featurette: Making of Impact - A behind the scenes peek into the making of the miniseries.
  • All-New Featurette: Creating Zero Gravity - Witness the creation of the visual effects that send a passenger train hurtling weightless through the air.
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Widescreen Presentation
  • Audio: English 5.1 (Dolby Digital)
