As if to make up for no new 24 until next year, Fox have this morning officially announced the “24 Season 1 (Special Edition)” DVD. Many will remember the original Season 1 DVD release was pretty much devoid of extras. Full details below the image of the rather cool metal cover.
At the moment the only release date known is for the region one edition on May 20th. But i’m fairly certain a region two release can’t be that far behind.
Extras include (items in bold are extras not found on original release) :-
- Season One Introduction by Kiefer Sutherland
- All-new documentary The Genesis of 24
- Five extended episodes (7:00PM – 8:00PM; 10:00PM – 11:00PM; 8:00PM – 9:00PM; 11:00PM – 12:00AM; 9:00PM – 10:00PM)
- 25 extended / deleted scenes
- Never-before-seen alternate season finale ending #2
- Commentary on the series premiere episode (12:00AM-1:00AM) by director Stephen Hopkins and Director of Photography Peter Levy
- Commentary on the series finale episode (11:00PM-12:00AM) by director Stephen Hopkins and actress Leslie Hope
- The Rookie online short films (sponsored by Degree)
- “Coffee Run”
- “Get This To…”
- Alternate season finale ending (with optional commentary by executive producer Joel Surnow)
For me the most interesting extras will be the commentaries on both the pilot and the series finale, it will be incredibly interesting to hear Stephen Hopkins, one of the key architects of the show’s unique style talk about these two key episodes. As well as to hear Leslie Hope talk about the series finale.
The boxset will retail for around $60 in the U.S.
