The next great family drama, Brothers & Sisters: The Complete First Season, will hit home on a 6-Disc DVD box set September 18th from Buena Vista Home Entertainment. Just in time to catch up with the Walkers before the season 2 premiere, the set includes a bonus un-aired episode and hours of revealing bonus features plus all the outstanding episodes from season 1 featuring a stellar cast – 2007 Emmy® nominee and Oscar® winner Sally Field (Best Actress for 1979’s “Norman Rae” and 1984’s “Places in the Heart”), alongside 2007 Emmy ® nominee Rachel Griffiths, Golden Globe® nominee Calista Flockhart (“Ally McBeal”), and Emmy® nominated Rob Lowe (“The West Wing.”)

The Brothers & Sisters: The Complete First Season DVD bonus features offer a ticket to the hidden heart of the top-rated ABC primetime drama. View an exclusive un-aired episode of the hit show, and explore the “Family Tree” feature, which leaves no Walker family stone unturned, with a backstage peek into the soul of this acclaimed ensemble series. “Behind the Scenes with the Brothers” grants access to the real-life homes of Walker brothers Tommy (Balthazar Getty), Justin (Dave Annable), and Kevin, (Matthew Rhys). “Family Business” introduces fans to Ken Olin’s family, the real family story behind the show’s success. Other special features include bloopers, deleted scenes and commentary by the producers.

The 6-DVD box set relives the laughs, tears and frustrations of this quintessential post-modern American family, the Walkers. The popular primetime drama explores the difficulties of 21st century family relationships, which can be simultaneously delicate and strong, dynamic and tedious, trustworthy and deceptive. Emmy® winner Tom Skerritt (“Picket Fences”) is family patriarch William, with Field as his strong-willed wife Nora and mother to the five Walker children.

Kitty (Flockhart) portrays a political pundit who’s always been daddy’s little girl, while Sarah (Griffiths) balances motherhood with managing the struggling family business. The loyal son and logical heir to the Walker firm is Tommy. Kevin is a gay lawyer struggling to find love, while Justin, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, deals with drug addiction. Ron Rifkin (“Alias”) does a turn as Nora’s brother Saul, second in command of the Walker family business. “The West Wing’s” Rob Lowe plays Kitty’s boyfriend Senator Robert McAllister.
“Brothers and Sisters” is produced by Ken Olin, Greg Berlanti and Jon Robin Baitz. Olin directed, produced and
acted in such hits as “Alias” “Felicity” and “thirtysomething.” Berlanti’s writing/producing credits include “Everwood”
and “Dawson’s Creek.” Baitz previously wrote for “The West Wing” and “Alias.”
