OVERVIEW: Catch up with television’s most heartfelt family drama before the critically acclaimed series returns this fall! From Oscar-winning® producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon) and showrunner Jason Katims (“Friday Night Lights”) comes the refreshingly original hit sensation, “Parenthood.” A heartfelt and thought-provoking series, “Parenthood” follows four grown siblings of the far-from-perfect Braverman clan as they try to balance kids and careers, dreams and commitments and romance . . . or a total lack thereof.
Hailed as “hilarious and heartbreaking” by In Touch Weekly and “in a class of its own” by the Los Angeles Times, “Parenthood” Season 1 debuts on DVD on August 31, 2010 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Featuring an all-star ensemble cast including Lauren Graham (“Gilmore Girls”), Peter Krause (“Six Feet Under”), Craig T. Nelson (“Coach”), Mae Whitman (Scott Pilgrim Versus the World), Dax Shepard (Baby Mama) and Erika Christensen (Traffic), this three-disc collection includes all 13 Season 1 episodes and takes viewers through the most challenging and rewarding role of a lifetime – being a parent.
