'Will & Grace' series finale available on DVD soon

MUMBAI: An independent film entertainment studio Lionsgate and NBC Universal Television Distribution, will release a DVD of the Will & Grace Series Finale, twelve days after its premiere on 18 May 2006.

It will be available from 30 May for the retail price of $9.98.

Currently in its eighth season, the Will & Grace Series Finale DVD will contain special features including cast and crew interviews and a behind the scenes featurette produced exclusively for this release. The featurette and interviews will be filmed during the last weeks of production, following the cast from their first table-read of the script, through rehearsals and the final taping of the show.

Starring Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, Will & Grace averaged a 4.5 rating, 12 share in adults 18-49 and 10.0 million viewers overall, during the 2004-2005 television season.

"The final episode of Will and Grace marks the end of an era," said Lionsgate president Steve Beeks. "While the show's success can be measured in so many ways - awards, ratings, longevity, acclaim - it is really about the ability of the viewers to identify and relate to the characters that made us want to tune in each week. We are well aware that this final episode will become an instant must-have piece of television history, and we jumped at the opportunity to be able to bring it to DVD so soon after its television airing."

To date, Will & Grace has been nominated for 73 Emmys, 27 Golden Globes, 17 SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Awards and 12 People's Choice Awards. Among its fourteen Emmy wins, in 2000, the show won for outstanding comedy series. In 2002 and 2003, it had more Emmy nominations than any other comedy series.

Plus, in 2005 Will & Grace was tied as one of the most-nominated series and also scored its highest number of Emmy nominations in a single year with 15.

Will & Grace has also won eight GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) media awards, two TV guide awards and one directors guild award. Additionally, the show has been nominated for six American comedy awards, seven television critics association awards and five producers guild awards.

The Chicago Tribune declared, "The show has always been funny, often as laugh-out-loud funny as anything else seen on TV."
