We actually pulled the news from the site. I had been told that it was cleared to post, then I posted it, then got an email the next day letting me know it won't be announced until later this month.

May 4th was the date I was given.

Hey Gord, since you're based in Canada, any more news on Trailer Park Boys? I have the Season One / Two 3 DVD set and would like news on more. Thanks.

From TVShowsOnDVD.com:
MGM Home Entertainment has announced their May 2004 schedule, and we're pleased to tell you that Showtime's acclaimed series, Dead Like Me, is on it! As with many DVD releases of new shows, the Season 1 release is timed to help promote the second season's premiere, which Showtime will begin marketing during the same period as the DVD comes out.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the show, TVTome.com has a great description that accompanies their episode guide for the series: "18-year-old George Lass dies when a piece of the MIR space station falls from the sky and hits her on the head... Darkly comic and quirky, the show follows George as she helps in catching the souls of people moments before they're destined to die..."

The stars shine in this release: Ellen Muth plays George, the pretty gal with the boy's name who's life takes a strange turn in death. Also see Laura Harris, Callum Blue, Rebecca Gayheart, Jasmine Guy, Cynthia Stevenson, Mandy Patinkin, Greg Kean, Britt McKillip, and Christine Willes.

This 4-DVD set runs 627 minutes and contains 14 episodes: "Pilot" (double-length), "Dead Girl Walking", "Curious George", "Reapercussions" (which aired last night in reruns), "Reaping Havoc", "My Room", "Reaper Madness", "A Cook", "Sunday Mornings", "Business Unfinished", "The Bicycle Thief", "Nighthawks", "Vacation", and "Rest in Peace".

The show will be on DVD in 16x9 Anamorphic Widescreen, and will have English 5.1 Surround Sound. In addition, you also get the following special features:

Audio Commentary
Deleted Scenes
Behind-the-Scenes Featurette
"The Music of Dead Like Me" Featurette
Photo Gallery

Death is coming for you on May 4th, and it won't cost you your soul at all. Just $58.96 (SRP)...not a bad deal in comparison, eh?

I'm definately going to buy this. DLM and Six Feet Under are my favorite TV shows. Now if only SFU Season Two would be announced...

It got picked up for a second season. :-)

Not only that - it has done so well that they have gotten a higher budget for the second season.

The new season starts in July.
