When ABC pulled Day Break from the airwaves in December 2006, the network promised to post the remaining seven episodes online. It took them awhile but ABC.com started showing them in February. Unfortunately, many people didn’t know that they were there or didn’t have computers that could handle the streaming video. Luckily for them (and anyone who missed the show entirely), the series is finally being released on DVD.
BCI has just announced that they will be releasing the complete Day Break series on DVD on March 11th — and what a package it will be! Aside from the standard photo gallery and interviews with cast and crew, it sounds like there will be audio commentary on all 13 episodes. The commentary tracks will feature series stars Taye Diggs, Moon Bloodgood, Adam Baldwin, Victoria Pratt, Mitch Pileggi, Meta Golding, Ian Dale Anthony and Ramon Rodriguez, as well as series creator/writer/producer Paul Zbyszewski, showrunner/writer/producer Jeffrey Bell, director/producer Rob Bowman, producer Matthew Gross, writers/producer Steven Maeda, writers/producer Henry Alonso Myers, and film editor/producer Marta Evry. Wow!
Unfortunately, it’s looking very likely that we won’t ever see Detective Brett Hopper in new adventures. On the upside, with all of the commentary tracks and interviews, it looks like we have a good shot at learning what the writers had in mind for a second season. Stay tuned!
