LOS ANGELES, CA � The darkly funny cult favorite is back from the dead when the film Dead Like Me premieres on DVD February 17th from MGM Home Entertainment. Set two years after the critically acclaimed Showtime series ended, the undead reapers are introduced to their new boss, Cameron Kane (Henry Ian Cusick; "Lost," Hitman), whose new agenda creates disorder within the reaper clan. While Daisy (Sarah Wynter; "24," "Windfall") and Mason (Callum Blue; "The Tudors," "Related") fall prey to Cameron's temptations, the infamous Georgia "George" Lass (Ellen Muth; Dolores Claiborne) creates more reaper havoc by breaking an important reaper rule: revealing herself to her Earthly family.

The Dead Like Me DVD bonus features include audio commentary from Ellen Muth and director Stephen Herek as well as a "Back From The Dead: Resurrecting Dead Like Me" featurette for a suggested retail price of $26.98 U.S. / $37.98 Canada. Timed to the movie release, MGM is also releasing "Dead Like Me" The Complete Collection which includes the Dead Like Me feature film and the complete television series, a director and cast commentary, deleted scenes, featurettes and more, for the suggested retail price of $69.98 U.S. / $99.98 Canada.

Dead Like Me Synopsis

When George and her colleagues get a new boss whose focus is on moving souls quickly and enjoying life without consequences, the team begins to break the strict reaper rules. While her friends fall victim to their desires for money, success, and fame, George breaks another rule by revealing her true identity to her living family. As the reapers struggle with their roles on Earth, they each find that death can be just as complicated as life. Through its strong storyline, Dead Like Me delves into the intricate mythology and dark comedy created by the TV series and appeals to the show's legions of fans as well as those new to the world of the reapers.

Dead Like Me Special Features

The Dead Like Me DVD is presented in widescreen with English Dolby Surround 5.1 sound. Bonus content includes:

"Dead Like Me" The Complete Collection Synopsis

Dearly beloved, gathered here for the first time on DVD is the feature-length Dead Like Me --Life After Death Movie, plus the entire "winningly eccentric" (LA Daily News) TV series on which the movie is based. Reap the benefits of this Soul Collectors' Edition that includes four featurettes, audio commentary, deleted scenes and more!

Georgia "George" Lass (Ellen Muth) is young, successful, attractive...and dead. She's a grim reaper, assigned to escort wayward souls into the afterlife, but it's not as glamorous as it sounds. Follow George and her fellow reapers as they navigate teenage "life." Then join them in the "series' hereafter" when the grim group gets a flippant new boss with a devil-may-care attitude, leaving George to wonder if she's really better off dead.

With all its dark humor, innovative science fiction and coming-of-age drama, it's no wonder that Dead Like Me refuses to die!
