BURBANK, CA  (May 8, 2013) – Step into the emotionally dark — yet real — human side of life and the often-disastrous effects of political ambition, as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group (WBHEG) releases the Golden Globe–nominated limited-series event Political Animals: The Complete Series on DVD August 6, 2013. The provocative  series, which follows a high-profile former first family as they weather the dynamics of their political and personal lives with grit, intelligence, and honesty, received a 2012 Golden Globe nomination for Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, as well as nominations from the Screen Actors Guild, the Directors Guild of America and the Writers Guild of America. The series aired on the USA Network in 2012 and delivered 3.2 million total viewers, ranking in the top 5 in its Sunday time slot. The Political Animals: The Complete Series DVD includes deleted scenes and is priced to own at $19.98 SRP.

While resolving international crises alongside manipulative colleagues and strategizing her own Oval Office bid, Elaine must also cope with her brilliant ex-husband’s philandering exploits and her twin sons’ struggles with drugs and guilt. Weaver was nominated for a Golden Globe Award, as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award, for her portrayal.Political Animals stars Sigourney Weaver (the Alien film franchise, Gorillas in the Mist), Carla Gugino (Spy Kids, Entourage), James Wolk (Mad Men, Shameless, Happy Endings,), Sebastian Stan (Gossip Girl, Kings), Brittany Ishibashi (The Mentalist, Parenthood), with Ellen Burstyn (Big Love, Requiem for a Dream) and Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Rome).
