Meet Kenny Powers, a washed-up former Major League pitcher with an insufferable ego and a mullet to boot. Hilarious and profane, Eastbound & Down stars Danny McBride (Tropic Thunder, Pineapple Express) as Powers, whose boorish behavior and fading fastball have led to a spectacular career flame-out. Out in stores on June 30, 2009, the 2-disc DVD set includes all six episodes from Season One, plus bonus materials including Making Eastbound & Down, deleted scenes, bloopers, audio commentaries, Kenny Powers: Greatest Hits, and two fake car commercials with actor/comedian Will Ferrell (who guest stars as a local car dealership owner and also serves as an executive producer of the show).

Down, but hardly humbled, former Major League pitcher Kenny Powers returns to his hometown of Shelby County, North Carolina, to teach Phys Ed at the middle school he once attended. Still a loose cannon and non-stop offender, he wreaks havoc everywhere he goes and even makes a pre-emptive romantic strike on his former high school squeeze, now a teacher engaged to the school principal. Psyching himself up for his comeback with motivational tapes he recorded in his former life, Powers proves to be an over-the-top, sometimes unlovable, but always entertaining character.
