October Road: Season One

Buena Vista Home Entertainment

DVD release date: October 30, 2007

Can you ever really go home again? Celebrated novelist Nick Garrett did, and you can welcome him back with the October 30th DVD debut of October Road from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.

Nick, played by Bryan Greenberg (“One Tree Hill”), moved out of his tiny Massachusetts burg to pursue literary fame and fortune in New York ten years ago. But success is a hungry beast, and his cosmopolitan editors want more than just a one-trick writer. So Nick moves back home with his widowed father, affectionately known as “The Commander” (Tom Berenger of “Platoon”), in order to bust up his writer’s block. The problem is, Nick transparently used his friends as unflattering literary fodder for his best-selling autobiographical book and they resent him for it.

Laura Prepon (“That ‘70s Show”) stars as Nick’s former high school sweetheart, Hannah Daniels, and Slade Pearce (“Air Buddies”) as her precocious nine year old son Sam. Nick’s group of friends include his best bud Eddie Latekka (Geoff Stults), the good-hearted Owen Rowan (Brad William Henke), the earnest and obnoxious Ikey (Evan Jones), Physical Phil (Jay Paulson), who turned recluse following September 11th, and Aubrey (Odette Yustman), the cute Bohemian college co-ed and fledgling writer who catches Nick’s romantic eye. Rounding out the cast is former high school bully Ray “Big Cat” Cataldo (Warren Christie).

The bonus features allow fans to take a ride down October Road with a behind-the-scenes look, audio commentary of the pilot and season finale episodes with the cast and creators and a preview of Season 2.

October Road is loosely based on the aftermath of the success of executive producer Scott Rosenberg’s 1996 film “Beautiful Girls.” Director Gary Fleder (“Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead”) and writer-producer Josh Appelbaum (“Alias”) also serve as executive producers

October Road sells for $29.99
