'Enlightened' is the new offbeat HBO series written by Mike White and starring Laura Dern as Amy, a self-destructive health and beauty executive who has a very public workplace meltdown. After three months of contemplation and meditation at a treatment center in Hawaii, Amy returns rested and ready to pick up the pieces of her old life and reshape the world she left behind. That includes delivering well-meaning, but generally unwanted advice to her mother Helen (Diane Ladd), with whom Amy is now living; her slacker ex-husband Levi (Luke Wilson) whose only solace comes from recreational drugs; and the crew of awkward co-workers Amy finds herself reassigned to. The series follows Amy as she navigates an unconventional path between who she is, who she wants to be...and what everyone is willing to tolerate from her.
Late last year HBO premiered the first 10 episodes, and now Amazon.com has begun taking pre-orders for Enlightened - The Complete 1st Season
on both DVD
and high-def Blu-ray Disc
. These listings are in advance of the official HBO Video announcement for these items, though, so instead of a street date Amazon only says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
" Pricing is available, however, currently showing $39.98 SRP for the standard DVD and $49.99 SRP for the Blu-ray (you can, of course, lock in your copy right away at a discounted price, if you order it using either of the above links). There are no other details available so far at Amazon's entries, nor is there cover art yet. Stay tuned, of course, and we'll update you further on this title, just as soon as we find out anything more!
