Port Washington, NY - This fall, the games begin as KOCH Vision debuts the smash television series LIFE WITH DEREK
on DVD. Airing continuously on the Disney Channel (U.S.) and Family Channel (Canada) since 2005 and currently in its forth season, this modern-day twist on the Brady Bunch
has been all the rage with kids 6-14 as the #1-rated show in its time-slot and was the winner of the prestigious Shaw Rocket Prize for Best Children's Program. On October 14, LIFE WITH DEREK: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
arrives as a must-have 2-DVD collector's set priced for every family home entertainment library at $29.98 srp. Featuring all 13 first season episodes, the jam-packed DVD set also includes an hour of bonus features including up-close-and-personal interviews with the stars and hilarious, behind-the-scenes b-roll footage as well as a collectible, full-color 8" x 20" locker poster and more!
Talented stars Seater and Leggat shine as Derek Venturi and Casey MacDonald, two typical teenagers who are used to being in charge...that is until Casey's mom and Derek's dad decide to get married and merge their two families into one. Now, the two type-A teens must find a way to live together under the same roof. Caught in the middle and adding to the fun are Derek and Casey's younger siblings, who change their alliances depending on the issue or the size of the bribe. Who will win as Derek and Casey battle for control of their house, their school and their world? Will it be Derek, the domestic Napoleon, already established in his domain - or will it be Casey, the tenacious pit bull whose determination to win makes up for her stubbornness? One thing's for sure, it may take some time for everyone to adjust to LIFE WITH DEREK
Created by Daphne Ballon and commissioned by The Family Channel (Canada), LIFE WITH DEREK
is produced by Shaftesbury Films. The series' stellar cast is rounded out by John Ralston ("Flash Gordon
