Slings and Arrows - Acorn Announces a High-Def Blu-ray Complete Collection Set!


6-BD package arrives with exclusive extras in late October

    Winner of 13 Gemini Awards and showered with critical acclaim, this darkly comic Canadian series follows the fortunes of a dysfunctional Shakespearean theatre troupe, exposing the high drama, scorching battles, and electrifying thrills that happen behind the scenes. "Outrageously entertaining" - NPR

    Paul Gross (Due South) stars as Geoffrey Tennant, the passionate but unstable artistic director of the New Burbage Theatre Festival. Haunted by the ghost of his predecessor (Stephen Ouimette), he struggles to realize his creative vision while handling touchy actors, a jittery general manager (Mark McKinney), a pretentious guest director (Don McKellar), and his own tempestuous romance with the festival's leading lady (Martha Burns).

    The backstage bedlam mirrors the onstage angst as Geoffrey directs three of Shakespeare's masterpieces-Hamlet, Macbeth, and King Lear-one in each season. Guest stars include Rachel McAdams (The Notebook), Colm Feore (Chicago), Sarah Polley (Go, The Sweet Hereafter), and renowned Stratford Festival actor William Hutt in one of his last performances.
Acorn Media has announced that on October 26th they will release a high-def Blu-ray Disc version of Slings and Arrows - The Complete Collection. Arriving on 6 discs, you'll get all 18 episodes (approximately 14 hours) presented in 1080p widescreen (note that the first season was upconverted to this format; the rest should be native presentations), with English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack and English subtitles. In addition you'll get bonus material consisting of 3 exclusive episode commentaries by the stars, writers, and director; a behind-the-scenes featurette; cast and crew interviews; backstage footage; bloopers; deleted and extended scenes; photo galleries; production notes; trailers; and song lyrics. Cost for all of this is $79.99 SRP in the USA, and CA$99.99 SRP in Canada. Below is the button link to pre-order from Amazon.com at a discount, and following that is a 3D picture of the packaging:
