By Rich Heldenfels Published: July 9, 2014

The official word on the CBS sitcom, which is returning in the fall, and the NBC drama, which is not.

"The Millers":

TV’s newest and funniest family moves in when THE MILLERS™: THE FIRST SEASON lands on DVD August 19 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution. Created by Greg Garcia, the #1 new comedy of the season features an ensemble cast led by Will Arnett, Beau Bridges, Margo Martindale, JB Smoove, Jayma Mays and Nelson Franklin.

Packed with bonus material that takes fans behind the scenes of the show’s premiere season, THE MILLERS™: THE FIRST SEASON includes every episode of the series that “shows what a thing of glory hear-the-laughs sitcomedy can be in the hands of masters” (Newsday). Capturing an average 11 million viewers during its first-season run, THE MILLERS™ was a People’s Choice Award® nominee for “Favorite New TV Comedy.”

THE MILLERS™: THE FIRST SEASON arrives packed with exclusive special features including “Season In Review: Year One,” an inside look at the series with new interviews from the cast and crew that explore the plots, characters and life on set. Join the writers and producers as they discuss their intentions and tactics to propel storyline arcs of the first season. Plus, the exclusive featurette, “J.B. (per REQ) Smoove Walks The Streets,” follows the comedian as he leads viewers in an entertaining behind–the-scenes tour of the show. The collection also includes “A Conversation With William Arnett: The Actor’s Actor,” an intimate tongue-in-cheek interview with Arnett that is also exclusive to this release. A special bonus disc available exclusively at Target will include even more never-before-released features such as a sit down with series Creator Greg Garcia to talk shop about his latest creation, along with more interviews with the cast.

THE MILLERS™ stars Arnett as Nathan Miller, a recently divorced local roving news reporter looking forward to living the single life until his parents' marital problems unexpectedly derail his plans. After Nathan finally breaks the news of his divorce to his parents, Carol (Martindale) and Tom (Bridges), his father is inspired to follow suit and stuns the family when he leaves his wife of 43 years. Already in shock, Nathan is even more aghast when his meddlesome mom decides to move in with him. Meanwhile, his absent-minded dad imposes upon Nathan's sister Debbie (Jayma Mays), her husband Adam (Nelson Franklin) and their daughter Mikayla (Lulu Wilson). Nathan's best friend and news cameraman Ray (Smoove) was excited to be Nathan's wingman in the dating scene, but Carol manages to even cramp his style. Now, as Nathan and his sister settle in with their truly impossible parents, they both wonder just how long the aggravating adjustment period is going to last.

THE MILLERS™: SEASON ONE includes guest appearances from Roseanne Barr, Andy Richter, Jeffrey Tambor, pop star Austin Mahone, Eliza Coupe, June Squibb and Jerry Van Dyke.

THE MILLERS™ airs on CBS on Thursday nights at 8:30 ET/PT. The three-disc DVD collection will be available in 16x9 Widescreen Format with English 5.1 and English Stereo audio and English SDH, Latin American Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese subtitles.

Fans of the post-apocalyptic action drama Revolution will be “powered up” to own the sophomore season of this compelling series, when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) releases Revolution: The Complete Second Season on DVD, Blu-rayTM Combo Pack and Digital HD UltraVioletTM on August 19, 2014. In its second season, Revolution ranked as the #1 returning drama on NBC with Men 18-49 and averaged more than 7.2 million Weekly Viewers. Revolution: The Complete Second Season includes all 22 action-packed episodes from Season Two, and is available to own for $59.98 / $69.97 SRP.  The release also contains multiple special features including two featurettes, a gag reel and deleted scenes. 


In this epic adventure thriller, a family struggles to survive in a world where all technology – computers, planes, cars, phones, lights – has suddenly and mysteriously blacked out.  What’s left is a post-apocalyptic landscape inhabited by ruthless paramilitary groups and heroic freedom fighters.  Charlie Matheson, a fiercely determined young woman who lost family members in the blackout’s tragic aftermath, manages to form a new family and find a new purpose amidst the chaos. Season Two of Revolution follows Charlie and a rogue band of survivors—including her secretive mother Rachel and formerly estranged uncle Miles, an ex-marine and militia leader—as they continue their heroic mission to return the power to the people and ultimately reestablish the United States of America.


“Revolution has captured the attention of an amazing fan base.  The unnerving suspense, action, and dramatic storylines have gripped the audience since the very beginning,” said Rosemary Markson, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Senior Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing.  “We are thrilled to release Revolution: The Complete Second Season on Blu-rayTM Combo Pack and DVD. With this release, fans will be able to dive even deeper into the edge-of-your-seat excitement of the epic adventure’s dramatic second season.”   


Created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural), and executive produced by J.J. Abrams (Lost, Star Trek, Alias), Bryan Burk (Star Trek, Fringe, Lost), Jon Favreau (Iron Man films), Rockne S. O’Bannon (Cult, Farscape), and Kripke, Revolution stars Billy Burke (The Twilight Saga), Tracy Spiridakos (Being Human), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Zak Orth (Nurse Jackie), David Lyons (Safe Haven), JD Pardo (90210), Stephen Collins (Falling Skies) and Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost).  Revolution is produced by Bonanza Productions, Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions, Kripke Enterprises and Warner Bros.
