"THE BOOK OF DANIEL: THE COMPLETE SERIES" AVAILABLE SEPTEMBER 26, 2006 FROM UNIVERSAL STUDIOS HOME ENTERTAINMENT

PROVOCATIVE AND CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED FAMILY DRAMEDY STARRING AIDAN QUINN AND ELLEN BURSTYN

DVD Set Featuring Four Episodes Never Aired on TV!

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- August 30, 2006 -- An imperfect and unconventional Episcopalian priest struggles with real-life issues of faith and family in the provocative and compelling drama, The Book of Daniel: The Complete Series, coming to DVD on September 26, 2006 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The Book of Daniel blends the irreverence of "Arrested Development" with the unconventional character development of "Six Feet Under" to create a refreshing take on modern-day saints and sinners. Emmy� nominee Aidan Quinn (Legends of the Fall) stars as the Reverend Daniel Webster, a pill-popping minister who struggles with the most unexpected earthly challenges. Emmy? and Oscar? winner Ellen Burstyn (Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, Requiem for a Dream) heads up the superb supporting cast as Bishop Beatrice Congreve, his spiritual advisor and superior. The Book of Daniel: The Complete Series comes in a double disc set that includes the two-hour pilot and deleted scenes. The two DVD set is priced at $29.98 SRP.

CRITICS PRAISE THE BOOK OF DANIEL

The Book of Daniel's offbeat examination of spirituality in the modern world captured the imagination of critics across the country when it debuted on NBC. The show is "mordantly witty, refreshingly intelligent," raves Tim Stack of Entertainment Weekly. It's "a lively, unpredictable jumble of 'Desperate Housewives,' 'Six Feet Under' and maybe The Ten Commandments," says Tom Gliatto, of People, awarding it "3 out of 4 stars." Matt Roush of TV Guide notes, "The A-list cast is terrific and the writing sharp and funny."

SYNOPSIS

A provocative, edgy and compelling new drama, The Book of Daniel stars Emmy� nominee Aidan Quinn (An Early Frost, Plainsong, Legends of the Fall) as the Rev. Daniel Webster, an unconventional Episcopalian priest. Webster is challenged on many levels as he struggles to be a good husband, father and minister, while navigating an often rocky relationship with church hierarchy, led by Bishop Beatrice Congreve (Oscar� winner Ellen Burstyn, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore).
