Oz Season 1 (R2) in February

Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Oz: Season 1 for 5th February 2007 priced at £24.99. Oz chronicles the violent life of prisoners inside an experimental cell block in the Oswald Maximum Security Correctional Facility: Level Four called Emerald City. Under unit manager Tim McManus (Terry Kinney, Sleepers, Save The Last Dance) and Warden Leo Glynn (Ernie Hudson, Ghostbusters), the inmates in Emerald City all struggle to fulfil their own needs. Some fight for power; power over the drug trade or power over the other inmate factions. Others want money, either through slinging 'tits' (drugs), gambling or other scams. Others, corrections officers and inmates alike, simply want to survive long enough to make parole or even to see tomorrow…

This two-disc set includes all 8 hour-long episodes of the critically acclaimed series first season, which is finally making its UK DVD debut. Like the other HBO series Paramount distributes in the UK (Deadwood), this will be a barebones release.
