In the vein of "Animal House," "Blue Mountain State" follows three incoming freshman in a big-time, Midwestern college football program. Alex is a talented quarterback, content to ride the bench while partying with his best friend Sammy, who aspires to be the school's mascot. Craig, on the other hand, is a number one recruit and future Pro whose life is already mapped out for him by his controlling girlfriend. Will they be able to juggle football, girls, class and nonstop hazing?
This past January saw Spike TV's debut of Blue Mountain State
, a racy TV series that is seen in Canada on Super Channel. Lionsgate is behind the series, with the producers being Eric Falconer and Chris Romano of shows like The Sarah Silverman Program
and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
While Lionsgate Entertainment has yet to announce a USA home video release of the show, their Canadian distributor Maple Pictures has a pre-order listing
at Amazon.ca which says that Blue Mountain State - Season 1
will arrive on DVD this coming September 28th
. The price provided is CA$29.95 SRP, but you can lock in your copy at a discount if you pre-purchase it now! No other details are available yet, nor is there any package art.
It's possible (even probable) that a United States release through Lionsgate will be announced in the weeks to come. We'll keep a sharp lookout for that, and let you know what we find out. Stay tuned!
