TV’s Favorite Domestic Goddess Makes Her DVD Debut From Anchor Bay Entertainment and Carsey Werner ROSEANNE SEASON ONE Available August 30th, The Four-Disc Set will Include the Pilot Episode and an All-New Interview with Roseanne TORONTO ON – Anchor Bay Entertainment and Carsey Werner proudly present Roseanne -Season One on DVD for the first time ever on August 30. This award-winning and ground-breaking series aired for nine seasons on ABC capturing the hearts of critics and fans alike. Roseanne - Season One will feature all 23 episodes in a four-disc set, including the pilot and an all-new interview with Roseanne. Set on 714 Delaware Street in the fictional city of Lanford, Illinois, Roseanne exploded onto the scene in 1988 and was immediately considered one of the most honest family comedies ever to air on network television. Roseanne was hailed for its realistic portrayal of the working class Conner family trying to keep it all together and make ends meet through lots of laughter and let-downs. With a biting sense of humor that always had an undercurrent of love, Roseanne shot to the top of the charts, ranking number two of all shows in the Nielsen Ratings during its first year. Roseanne - Season One is loaded with bonus-materials including “Roseanne on Roseanne,” a brand-new interview with the show’s star. The set also contains hilarious bloopers, Season One highlights and an interview with co-star John Goodman entitled “John Goodman Takes a Look Back.” In addition, Roseanne - Season One will include “Wisdom from the Domestic Goddess,” packed with Roseanne’s witty one-liners from the show. Much of the show’s success is credited to its Emmy-winning star and executive producer, Roseanne, whose unique and honest humor was a refreshing change to the sitcom landscape of the late 1980’s. Roseanne developed her character Roseanne Conner by touching on many of her own real life experiences. Through all of Roseanne Conner’s sarcasm and bossy demeanor you never doubted the love she had for her family. The series was groundbreaking in its portrayal of average working people who did not have the traditional “Hollywood glamour” look, and its handling of realistic and taboo issues such as, poverty, homosexuality, alcoholism, child-rearing, marriage, unemployment and birth control. Roseanne’s amazing cast included: the prolific Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe- winning-actor, John Goodman (O’Brother, Where Art Thou) who played Roseanne’s husband and champion, Dan; Emmy-winning actress, Laurie Metcalf (Uncle Buck) played Roseanne’s sister and confidant, Jackie; the Conner’s oldest and boy-crazed daughter, Becky, was played by Alicia Goranson (Boys Don't Cry); the quick-witted and formidable middle child, Darlene, was portrayed by Sara Gilbert (“24”) and Michael Fishman (Artificial Intelligence: AI) played DJ, the youngest of the Conner bunch. Season One guest stars include George Clooney (Ocean's Twelve) and Fred Dalton Thomas ("Law & Order: Trial by Jury").
