Xena & Hercules Season 1 Re-Released on DVD!

Make way for one of the fiercest and most dynamic woman warriors to ever grace the TV screen as all 24 Season One episodes of Xena: Warrior Princess come to DVD. Lucy Lawless is Xena: a smart, tough, and fearless fighter who travels the dangerous roads of Ancient Greece defending the innocent from the forces of darkness and seeking redemption for her cruel misdeeds of the past.

Along for the adventures is her devoted friend Gabrielle (Renée O'Connor), a compassionate girl who hopes to be a warrior one day, and other legendary figures, including the formidable Hercules (guest star Kevin Sorbo). Combining impressive displays of mythology, fantasy, and martial arts, it's an iconic show that set the bar for all female action heroes.

It's been a bit over 7 years since Xena: Warrior Princess - Season 1 first came to DVD, as a seven disc set originally sold online, directly to fans, from Davis-Panzer in late 2002, and then distributed by Anchor Bay in retail stores beginning in April 2003.  That release has been discontinued, but now Universal Studios Home Entertainment would like to bring those episodes back to market.  This morning Universal announced that Xena: Warrior Princess - Season 1 will be re-released as a 5-DVD set, for just $26.98 SRP, and available on April 20th.  No details, bonus material (if any), or package art has been provided so far...just the A/V specs:  full screen video, English Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo sound, and English subtitles.  Stay tuned, and we'll update you further just as soon as we find out more!

From Renee's Official Message Board:

Good morning everyone!
It is clear that I have an obvious passion about sharing my learnings in living a fully aware life with you all, right?

This is going to be a full day, where I will have the time to work with you on your personal journey in awareness. The entire day is devoted to this work, which is based around the life's work of Mary Rocamora and the Rocamora School for the Gifted. I will be posting more information on a website devoted to this event, for easy access. The date in London will be May 16, 2010.

Renee's 'Fitful' movie to premier in Manistee

LDN Staff - Wednesday, January 6, 2010

MANISTEE -- Area residents will have a chance at a Jan. 16 sneak peek of the movie "Fitful," which was shot in Manistee during September 2009.


The movie stars Renee O'Connor -- known best as Gabrielle in "Xena: Warrior Princess" -- and Larry Joe Campbell -- who plays Andy, Jim Belushi's sidekick in "According to Jim" -- and was shot mostly on the retired Lake Michigan carferry the SS City of Milwaukee.

"Fitful" was made by Brauer Productions of Traverse City and the company calls it a dark comedy/suspense feature written and directed by 2009 Michigan Film Maker of the Year Rich Brauer. [...]

In the film, Paula (Renee O'Connor) is an inspector for the Historic Trust who visits an abandoned ship on a desolate waterfront. She meets up with the self-appointed caretaker, Vigs (Larry Joe Campbell), who blindly made the application for historical status. Moments after her arrival, her car is disabled and she is far from town and is stuck for the night.

Without other options, she takes him up on his offer to spend the night. What follows is a sleepless night of bad dreams and creepy reality.

O'Connor has held numerous roles since she started her career directly out of high school and she gained a huge following as Gabrielle on "Xena: Warrior Princess." [...]

"Renee and Larry and the rest of the cast were the perfect fit, and it was a pleasure to bring them to Michigan. They both understood the story and brought a lot to the table. This is a unique film that Hollywood wouldn't make, and that makes me happy," said Brauer.

A special one-showing sneak peek of the new film "Fitful" is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 16 at the Ramsdell Theatre in Manistee. Admission is $5.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.ci.manistee.mi.us or www.treatickets.com.

Tickets can also be purchased at the Ramsdell Theatre box office starting at 5:30 p.m. the day of the event, cash only.
