    Every Episode Of The Drama From Glenn Gordon Caron Starring Dennis Haysbert, Eric Close And Margaret Colin Makes DVD Debut August 26 Packed With Newly Produced Special Features
    You only live twice in the gripping series NOW AND AGAIN. Hailed as “stylish, clever, and unpredictable” (People) and “a joy ride full of surprises” (New York Daily News) upon its broadcast premiere in 1999, the drama stars Eric Close, Dennis Haysbert, Margaret Colin and Heather Matarazzo.

    From the creator of Moonlighting and Medium, Glenn Gordon Caron, NOW AND AGAIN: THE DVD COLLECTION arrives August 26 as a five-disc set including all 22 episodes of the series, along with all-new bonus material exclusive to the collection from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution.

    Special to this release are several must-see, in-depth featurettes that delve into the making of the critically acclaimed series. A special highlight is the four-part documentary, “Gimme A Sign: Engineering Now And Again,” which features newly filmed interviews with the cast members including Eric Close, Dennis Haysbert, Margaret Colin, Gerrit Graham,
    Heather Matarazzo, Chad Lowe, along with Glenn Gordon Caron, director and executive producer Ronald L. Schwary, and writers René Echevarria, and Michael Angeli.

    Plus, “Now And Again: On The Set” takes fans on location with behind-the-scenes looks at the making of the series, including interviews and footage filmed during its production. Also, “In Conversation: Writing Now And Again” includes fascinating interviews with the series creator Glenn Gordon Caron and members of the show’s writing staff as they discuss the process of crafting the series-long story arc, and share details on some of the ideas that were in development had the show been picked up for a second season.

    Insurance salesman and family man Michael Wiseman is tragically killed in a subway accident, leaving behind his wife (Colin) and daughter (Matarazzo). Little do they know that the U.S. government, with the help of Dr. Theo Morris (Haysbert), preserved his brain and inserted it into a new, genetically bio-engineered body (Close) to use as a top-secret weapon. Artificially created for physical perfection and superhero strength and agility, the new and improved Michael – with Morris as his mentor – takes on deadly terrorists, corrupt agents, killer bugs, and an extremely dangerous international criminal known as “the Egg Man.” However, Michael can never let his wife and daughter know his true identity, and is forced to watch from the shadows as they grieve for the man he used to be.
