Lionsgate Selling 'Weeds'20 Apr, 2006 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Lionsgate July 11 will street Weeds: Season 1 on DVD for the first time at $39.98 (prebook is June 14).
The award-winning Showtime series stars Mary-Louise Parker, Elizabeth Perkins and Kevin Nealon. Parker won a Golden Globe for her leading role as Nancy Botwin, a recently widowed mother who goes to extremes, including selling marijuana, to keep her family in suburbia.
The boxed set includes plenty of bonus material, including “Smoke & Mirrors,” a marijuana mockumentary; Agrestic herbal recipes; smokey snippets (dialogue with cast); suburban shakedown (contrasting show with classic suburbia TV shows); music video and Q&A sessions.
