JOAN OF ARCADIA is a drama that follows a typical family facing atypical situations -- not the least of which is their teenage daughter's sudden, unexpected conversations with God. A tough but soft-hearted police chief, Will Girardi is new to the city of Arcadia and dreams of providing a safe haven for his family and community. An outbreak of serious crime in his idyllic new town challenges Girardi's desire for order, as do the ups-and-downs he faces with his family.

Daughter Joan, an average teenager, has begun acting a little strange. No one knows that it has to do with the unusual way various people keep popping up, introducing themselves as God, and then giving her specific directions to do things -- such as get a job. The appearances are hard for her to believe, even more so as she never knows who's going to turn up next. One minute it's a cute boy her own age, the next it's the lunch lady. For now, she's keeping it all a secret. Rounding out the Girardi family are her mother, Helen; her 15-year-old science-geek brother, Luke; and her older brother, Kevin, a former high-school sports star who is in a wheelchair as a result of a car accident. Unsure of what God wants, and if she's even sane, Joan tentatively begins to follow God's cryptic directives, all the while trying to retain a "normal" teen-aged existence.

JOAN OF ARCADIA: THE FIRST SEASON is presented in widescreen format enhanced for 16:9 televisions and features Dolby Digital English 2.0 Surround. The DVD collection is priced at under $45 in the U.S. and around C$50 in Canada. JOAN OF ARCADIA: THE FIRST SEASON is Not Rated in the U.S. by the Motion Picture Association of America and is rated PG in Canada. All six discs are encoded with the Macrovision� Anticopy process and are closed-captioned for the hearing-impaired.
