Yup, the promising but short-lived series arrives on July 29. Full release after the jump. Liked what I saw of it, but not sure Warner can call a show that lasted 13 episodes a hit.
The wait is over! Birds of Prey, the hit WB show and the #5 most requested unreleased show on TVShowsOnDVD.com, will finally make it to DVD. Three young female heroines will be fighting together, living together, and soaring into adventure together when Warner Home Video’s (WHV) releases of Birds of Prey: The Complete Series on July 29, 2008 for $39.98 SRP. Birds of Prey: The Complete Series includes all 13 episodes from the series plus all-new bonus features in a 4-disc collection.
From the creators of the CW hit Smallville, Birds of the Prey was produced in 2002 for the WB and is loosely based on the DC Comics series with the same name. The hit show brought in 7.6 million viewers each week and was the largest audience in the 18-34 demographic for the network at that time. While the world was sleeping at night, the Birds of Prey flock together to fight crime on the streets of New Gotham City. Several years after the city was abandoned by Batman, the awesome threesome of Huntress (Ashley Scott), Oracle (Dina Meyer), and Dinah (Rachel Skarsten) was formed. Huntress is the daughter of Batman and Catwoman and can smell danger from miles away. Dinah has the gift of clairvoyance and Oracle leads the team through her cyber experience, despite being wheelchair bound by the Joker. During the course of the show, the girls are often confronted with schemes masterminded by Dr. Quinzel, but always prevail and beat him at his own game.
“The Birds of Prey continues the legacy of Batman in an action-packed show with a trio of female heroines that are adored by fans,” said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV Marketing, “We are delighted to finally release Birds of Prey: The Complete Series for the very loyal fan base and a new generation of comics lovers.”
In addition to the entire series, complete with 13 full episodes, Birds of Prey: The Complete Series includes never-before-seen special features such as:
Gotham Girls S1-3 – An animated series of shorts starring the Birds of Prey characters.
