[via press release from Universal Studios Home Entertainment]

THE EMMY� NOMINATED SECOND SEASON OF ONE OF TELEVISION'S MOST POPULAR HIT SERIES COMES TO DVD AUGUST 22ND FROM UNIVERSAL STUDIOS HOME ENTERTAINMENT

HOUSE: SEASON TWO

"BOTH HILARIOUS AND HEARTBREAKING, THIS COULD BE NETWORK TV'S BEST CURRENT SERIES." �DAVID KRONKE, L.A. DAILY NEWS

Universal City, Calif. -- July 18, 2006 -- Medical misanthrope Dr. Gregory House starts making house calls on August 22, 2006 when 2006 Emmy� nominee House: Season Two comes to DVD from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Arriving just in time for House fans to catch the episodes they missed before the premiere of Season Three, this new six-disc set stars Hugh Laurie in his Golden Globe�-winning role as an irresistibly quirky infectious disease specialist and medical Sherlock Holmes. House's caustic wit and unorthodox approach to patient care ruffle the feathers of his superiors and staff but his unerring instinct for detecting rare illnesses earns him their grudging respect. The most shocking and compelling medical drama on television, House has become one of TV's most acclaimed dramas, earning a 2006 Emmy� nomination for Outstanding Drama Series. Named Program of the Year for 2005 by the American Film Institute, the series also earned a 2005 Emmy� Award plus four additional Emmy� nominations, a Television Critics Association Award and a Peabody Award for Achievement in Electronic Media. A hit with critics and fans alike, this DVD is a must-own for any of the over 25 million viewers that tuned into the Season Two finale.

An inspiring teacher, master diagnostician and all-around pain in the neck, House's bedside manner is nonexistent, his manners appalling, and his attitude toward authority exasperating. He is also an unsurpassed medical sleuth, cracking controversial cases that leave other doctors scratching their heads. Making memorable guest appearances in Season Two are top stars ranging from Sela Ward to Ron Livingston and LL Cool J to Cynthia Nixon. The six-DVD set is priced at $59.98 SRP. Pre-order close is July 18, 2006.
