UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- April 25, 2007 -- A U.S. Marshall discovers that a small town has big secrets when Eureka: Season One, the SCI FI Channel's inventively entertaining hit series, appears on DVD on July 3, 2007 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. For the first time, the slightly surreal, wholly original show, plus more than 45 minutes of behind-the-scenes extras, is available in a three-disc set in 5.1 Dolby Digital sound. Using a unique combination of suspense and humor, creators Andrew Cosby and Jaime Paglia have fashioned a singular world where daily life straddles the line between eccentricity and total chaos. Colin Ferguson (Because I Said So, Line of Fire) stars as Jack Carter, the sheriff of one of the government's best-kept secrets, with Salli Richardson-Whitfield (Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid) as the alluring federal agent charged with keeping Eureka under wraps. The ensemble cast includes Joe Morton (The Night Listener), Matt Frewer (Max Headroom) and Debrah Farentino ("Earth 2") as residents of the top-secret brain trust, with Jordan Hinson (The Good Mother) as Carter's rebellious teenage daughter. The DVD is priced at $39.98 SRP. Pre-order close is May 29, 2007.

In this innovative and imaginative hit series from the SCI FI Channel and NBC Universal Television Studios, U.S. Marshall Jack Carter stumbles into Eureka, a cozy hamlet in the woods that also happens to be a top-secret government research center. While retrieving his runaway teenage daughter Zoe (Jordan Hinson), Carter has a freak car accident outside of an out-of-the-way settlement that appears to be the epitome of wholesome, small town America. In fact, it's a quirky community of some of the world's most brilliant scientific minds, cloistered there to carry on groundbreaking and often dangerous research. When the consequences of an experiment gone awry puzzle even this advanced brain trust, Carter agrees to stay as sheriff. Now goings on at Eureka's Advanced Research Facility keep him hopping as he investigates seemingly impossible occurrences, including a politician who mysteriously appears in a crop circle, time manipulation and personality-altering pollen. Eureka: Season One includes all 12 episodes of the show that Louisville's Courier-Journal calls "The most original new drama - intelligent and entertaining."
The second season of Eureka premieres July 2007 on SCI FI. Eureka is produced by NBC Universal Television Studio.
