UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., May 18 -- Ordinary people with extraordinary abilities link a group of complete strangers that may determine the future of the world when "Heroes: Season 1" comes to DVD and HD DVD August 28, 2007 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The most acclaimed and addictive new series of the 2006-2007 television season, "Heroes: Season 1," which was created by Tim Kring ("Providence," "Crossing Jordan"), features an extraordinary ensemble cast that includes Sendhil Ramamurthy ("Blind Guy Driving"), Milo Ventimiglia ("Gilmore Girls"), Adrian Pasdar ("Judging Amy"), Hayden Panettiere ("Bring It On: All Or Nothing"), Ali Larter ("Final Destination"), Noah Gray-Cabey, ("My Wife & Kids"), Leonard Roberts ("Smallville"), Santiago Cabrera ("Empire"), Tawny Cypress (NBC's "Third Watch"), Greg Grunberg ("Alias"), Masi Oka, (NBC's "Scrubs"), Jack Colman ("Dynasty"), James Kyson Lee (NBC's "Las Vegas"), Zachary Quinto ("24"), Ashley Crow (NBC's "American Dreams"), Cristine Rose (NBC's "Friends"), Jimmy Jean-Louis ("Monster-in-Law"), Eric Roberts ("Less than Perfect") and Malcolm McDowall ("Entourage"). Electrifying intrigue, compelling mythology and soaring imagination make the NBC epic drama the must see event of the year.

"Heroes" is television's number-one new show of the 2006-2007 season.

SYNOPSIS

Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy), a genetics professor from Chennai, picks up his late father's research and makes an astonishing discovery -- a seemingly random group of people around the world are developing astonishing super powers. From a drug-addicted artist (Santiago Cabrera), who paints the future and an ambitious politician (Adrian Pasdar) who can fly, to a New York cop who hears other people's thoughts (Greg Grunberg) and a Japanese computer programmer (Masi Oka) who can distort the space time continuum, these new Heroes seem to have a shared destiny. Creator Tim Kring ("Crossing Jordan") fashions a complex new world full of hidden clues, breathtaking plot twists and suspense-filled conundrums for an exhilaratingly fresh story about average people who are confronting the existence of inexplicable super powers. Also starring Milo Ventimiglia, Hayden Panettiere, Ali Larter, Noah Gray-Cabey, Leonard Roberts, Tawny Cypress and Jack Colman, "Heroes: Season 1" is packed with special bonuses that take viewers deeper into this rich and riveting series. Relive the excitement or discover it for the first time with "Heroes: Season 1" on DVD and HD DVD.
