LOS ANGELES (July 26, 2018) – From Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) and Fox Home Entertainment comes the charming and addictive comedy series Get Shorty Season 1 to DVD August 7. The MGM Television produced series stars Chris O’Dowd and Ray Romano. Additionally, Season 5 Part 1 of Vikings, is coming to Blu-ray™ and DVD October 2.
Get Shorty Season 1 – August 7
Based in part on Elmore Leonard’s New York Times bestselling novel, Get Shorty is the story of Miles Daly, played by Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) who works as muscle for a crime ring in Nevada who tries to become a movie producer in Hollywood as a means to leave his criminal past behind and win back his recently estranged family. There, he meets Rick Moreweather (three-time Emmy Award-winner Ray Romano), a washed up producer of low quality films who is desperately hanging on to the rungs of Hollywood relevancy and begrudgingly becomes Miles’ partner and guide through the maze of show business. Along with his criminal associate Louis (Sean Bridgers), Miles attempts to keep his worlds from colliding as he balances the demands of filmmaking while keeping the suspicions of the crime ring’s chief – and production bankroll – Amara (Lidia Porto) and her dangerous nephew, Yago (Goya Robles) at bay. Also involved in the production is ambitious studio executive April Quinn (Megan Stevenson), who started in the business as Rick’s assistant, as well as Miles’ beloved daughter Emma (Carolyn Dodd) – despite objections from Miles’ estranged wife, Katie (Lucy Walters).
Vikings Season 5 Part 1 – October 2
Season five begins with Ivar the Boneless asserting his leadership over the Great Heathen Army, while Lagertha reigns as Queen of Kattegat. Ivar’s murder of his brother Sigurd sets the stage for vicious battles to come as Ragnar’s sons plot their next moves after avenging their father’s death. Bjorn follows his destiny into the Mediterranean Sea and Floki who is suffering from the loss of his wife Helga, takes to the seas submitting himself to the will of the Gods. This season is full of startling alliances and unbelievable betrayals as the Vikings fight to rule the world.
