Life Unexpected: Complete First Season

Warner Home Video brings out the coming-of-age family drama, Life Unexpected: The Complete First Season to DVD January 4, 2011. Life Unexpected centers around 15-year-old Lux (Britt Robertson), who was given up for adoption at birth but has now been reunited with her birth parents – radio show host Cate (Shiri Appleby) and bartender Baze (Kristoffer Polaha). The three form an unlikely family, complicated by the fact that Cate is engaged to her co-host, Ryan (Kerr Smith).

The three-disc set, which includes all 13 episodes from the first season, two featurettes, has an order due date of November 30, 2010.

A family court judge unites Lux Cassidy with Cate, the former teenage mom who gave baby Lux up for adoption almost 16 years earlier, and Baze, the dad who never knew she existed. Cate is now a commitment-wary Portland radio personality and engaged to her fabulous fiancé Ryan. Baze is a good-natured goof-off who still lives like an aging frat boy with his slacker roommates Math (Austin Basis) and Jamie (Reggie Austin). And Lux? She’s a self-reliant foster kid weary of bouncing from home to home – and not sure her unexpected new life is going to work out any better. What does it take to make a family?
The answers begin to surface in season one of this smart, warm-hearted, critically acclaimed series offering stories you can believe in and characters you can love.
Life Unexpected premiered to 2.83 million viewers, outperforming Gossip Girl‘s original season average in Adults 18-34 and improving on its One Tree Hill lead-in by 30% in total viewers. The series was nominated in 2010 for the Teen Choice Awards’ TV Breakout Show!
The series is produced by CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television in association with Mojo Films. Executive producers include Liz Tigelaar (Brothers and Sisters, What About Brian), Gary Fleder (October Road) and Janet Leahy (Gilmore Girls).
