THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
“The GLEEK Edition”

‘Gleeks’ and ‘Cheerios’ worldwide will celebrate September 14 when the groundbreaking musical comedy − GLEE: The Complete First Season “The GLEEK Edition” − debuts on Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment featuring all 22 one-hour episodes including the highly anticipated “The Power of Madonna” episode and other fan-favorites.  From series creator Ryan Murphy (“Nip/Tuck”), GLEE: The Complete First Season “The GLEEK Edition” Blu-ray and DVD is pitch-perfect with more than two hours of never-before-seen extras sure to hit the right note.

GLEE: Season 1, Volume 2: Road To Regionals, featuring the last nine episodes of Season One and the complete bonus material available on GLEE: The Complete First Season “The GLEEK Edition,” will also be available on DVD for fans that previously purchased Volume One last year.

“The show started out as a comedy musical about the underdog in all of us and has blossomed, largely due to the incredible support and passion from the fans that have embraced the show,” says Murphy.  “When we developed the Blu-ray and DVD, we wanted to give those fans something special because they’ve been so great to us.  There’s everything from a sing-along karaoke, to a behind-the-scenes look at our Madonna episode, to a dance lesson from our amazing choreographers.  It’s our ‘thank you’ to the Gleeks.”

Television’s most award-winning new series, GLEE was honored with a Golden Globe® for Best Television Series, Comedy or Musical; a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series; and a People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Comedy.

GLEE follows an optimistic teacher who – against all odds and a malicious cheerleading coach – inspires McKinley High’s Glee Club to conquer the world one singing competition at a time. GLEE stars Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Mark Salling and Jenna Ushkowitz.  The hit show has attracted celebrity guest appearances by Kristin Chenoweth, Eve, Josh Groban, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, Olivia Newton-John, Idina Menzel, and Molly Shannon.

The music from GLEE continues to shine with inventive renditions of past and present hit songs including Ike & Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary,” Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” and Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.”

GLEE: The Complete First Season “The GLEEK Edition” Blu-ray and DVD are bursting with exclusive bonus materials and extended episodes, a sing-along karaoke, a behind-the-scenes look at “The Power of Madonna” episode, Glee Makeovers, never-before-seen “Sue’s Corners” and a dance tutorial titled “Staying in Step with Glee.”  GLEE: The Complete First Season “The GLEEK Edition” will be available in a four-disc Blu-ray and seven-disc DVD set for the suggested retail price of $69.99 U.S/$89.99 Canada and $59.98 U.S./$69.98 Canada, respectively.

A Musical Triumph
