Father of the Pride in June
Dreamworks Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Father of the Pride: The Complete Series for 7th June 2005 priced at $29.99 SRP. This prime-time computer animated series from Dreamworks was unceremoniously cancelled following declining ratings coupled with the high budget per episode (estimated at $1.6 million). The series follows a family of white lions who work as performers for Seigfried & Roy in Las Vegas, where they and their animal friends are located in a town of their own going about day to day life outside of the jungle they were plucked from. John Goodman, Cheryl Hines, Orlando Jones and Carl Reiner headline the voice cast.
A single dual-layer, double sided disc holds the entire first season including the original unaired pilot & three never-before-seen episodes (making 14 episodes total) presented in Anamorphic Widescreen with English Stereo and 5.1 Surround audio options, and subtitles in English, French and Spanish.
