Lionsgate Slates Three Series for Disc12 Dec, 2011 By: John Latchem
Lionsgate has set Feb. 21 for the DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases of Showtime series Weeds: Season Seven and Nurse Jackie: Season Three. Both are priced at $39.98 on DVD and $39.99 on Blu-ray.
The same day, Lionsgate will release Borgia: Season One as a three-DVD set at $39.98. Not to be confused with the Showtime series “The Borgias” (the first season of which Paramount releases on DVD and Blu-ray Dec. 27), the version released by Lionsgate is a French/German co-production depicting the powerful Borgia family of Italy. It stars John Doman as Rodrigo Borgia, a Renaissance-era pope on a quest for power. The boxed set includes a making-of featurette.
The “Weeds” set includes commentaries with cast and crew; an “Uncle Andy’s Tricks of the Trade” mockumentary; deleted scenes; a gag reel; a Q&A with Jenji Kohan, Justin Kirk and Kevin Nealon; and a “Growing Up in the Weeds” featurette with Alexander Gould.
“Nurse Jackie” includes commentaries, featurettes, a gag reel and deleted scenes.
