BURBANK, CA (July 22, 2020) –The fascinating true story of one of the largest public-school embezzlement scandals in America, is chronicled in Bad Education. This compelling original film from HBO will be released on DVD by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on September 8, 2020. Now fans have the opportunity to own this powerful film on DVD, including bonus content, which will retail for $19.98 SRP ($24.98 Canada). Bad Education is also available to own on Digital via purchase from digital retailers.

Additionally, Bad Education will be available on Blu-rayTM courtesy of Warner Archive Collection. The Blu-ray release includes all the bonus features on the DVD and is also arriving September 8, 2020. Warner Archive Blu-ray™ releases are found at wb.com/warnerarchive and your favorite online retailer.

The movie, which received high praise from critics, stars Academy® Award nominated and Golden GlobeÒ and Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman (The Greatest Showman, Les Misérables), and EmmyÒ, Academy Award, Golden Globe and SAG Award winner Allison Janney (I, Tonya, Mom). The incredible cast also stars Geraldine Viswanathan, Alex Wolff, Rafael Casal, Annaleigh Ashford and Ray Romano.

Inspired by the true story that rocked the town of Roslyn, NY in 2004 and garnered attention nationwide, Bad Education centers on the stunning impact and aftermath of a multi-million dollar embezzlement scheme. The darkly comical film highlights the deficiencies of the public education system in the U.S. while examining the broader forces that foster greed, corruption and lack of accountability in our institutions.

Bad Education follows Frank Tassone (Jackman) and Pam Gluckin (Janney), who reign over a popular Long Island school district on the verge of the nation’s top spot, spurring record college admissions and soaring property values. Between them, they racked up over $11.2 million dollars in extravagant personal expenses.

Bad Education is a fascinating tale of greed and corruption that’s superbly written and directed, with stellar performances by Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. She added, “It’s a truly exceptional film that has resonated with critics and viewers, and we are delighted to make it available to own on Digital, DVD and Blu-ray. Fans won’t want to miss the opportunity to add this outstanding film to their home entertainment collections.”

Bad Education, an HBO Films presentation, is directed by Cory Finley (Thoroughbreds); written by Mike Makowsky (I Think We’re Alone Now), based on a New York Magazine article by Robert Kolker; produced by Fred Berger and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones for Automatik; Edward Vaisman, Julia Lebedev, and Oren Moverman for Sight Unseen Pictures; Mike Makowsky for Slater Hall; executive produced by Leonid Lebedev and Caroline Jacko.

Is this the first such new (non-catalog) BD release straight to Warner Archive?

Granted, it never had a wide theatrical release, and HBO probably never intended that even w/out this pandemic...

No, it’s been standard practice for some time for Warner Archive to handle the BD release of made-for-TV content that the main branch of the company handles the DVDs for. That’s just a reflection on the sales disparity between how many copies a thing will sell on DVD vs on BD.

I'll probably just buy the iTunes digital whenever it eventually gets down to $5... unless I end up catching it next time I re-up my subscription of HBO Now/Max (and don't like it enough).

Don't see myself spending ~$18 on a WAC BD for this...
