The Outer Limits - Press Release, (Correct) Finalized Package Art for The Complete Original Series

Available at Borders stores for a year now, this comes to everyone else in October

Posted by David Lambert
We've received the formal press release from MGM/Fox for The Outer Limits - The Complete Original Series, which sees a general retail release on October 21st. That's below the finalized box art, which you'll see immediately following, and which accompanied this press release.

Several weeks ago we showed you different art for this set, which was provided to retailers by the studio, and passed along to us by our friends in the retail industry. We've checked with MGM to be certain which packaging is correct, and they assure us it is the one you see here. This is the same package art design that was used on the Borders-exclusive release of this set, which was available at that chain last summer:

Celebrate the 45th Anniversary of the Mind-Bending Classic Series on DVD October 21

LOS ANGELES, CA - MGM Home Entertainment controls all that you see and hear when The Outer Limits Original Series Complete Box Set DVD invades homes on October 21, 2008. Hailed as "the best program of its type to ever run on network TV" by acclaimed author Stephen King, this sci-fi fantasy original series ignited the imagination of viewers with the help of such distinguished guest star appearances by Academy Award Winner® Robert Duvall (Tender Mercies), Adam West ("Batman"), Eddie Albert ("Green Acres") and Star Trek alumni William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and James Doohan.

The 1960s debut of the macabre series broke new ground by blurring the line between fact and fiction with dark introspective storylines. Fans became hooked as the series continued to challenge the human mind by making the unbelievable seem like a terrifying reality. As television's longest running science-fiction anthology, "The Outer Limits" has garnered several awards, including four Cable Ace Awards, two Gemini Awards and two Saturn Awards. Featuring seven-discs, The Outer Limits Original Series Complete Box Set contains the complete classic series, including all 49 episodes for a suggested retail price of $59.98.

The classic, thrilling science fiction program with a different cast each week explores hard science, space travel, time travel and human evolution as it examines the probing question, "What is the true nature of Man?"
