West Wing runs into its sixth term on DVD in May

Warner Home Video just released final details on the upcoming release of West Wing: The Complete Sixth Season, scheduled for release in May to coincide with the series’ finale.

Viewers will remember season six as “the season of change,” when C.J. (Allison Janney) becomes chief of staff, President Bartlet (Martin Sheen) suffers a debilitating attack of multiple sclerosis, and Josh (Bradley Whitford) leaves the White House to run Matt Santos’ (Jimmy Smits) presidential campaign. Even if they’ve never seen an episode, consumers will enjoy watching the behind-the-scenes battle over who will score the Democratic nomination and go up against Republican frontrunner Arnold Vinick (Alan Alda) for President.

Apart from all 22 episodes of the sixth season on six discs, the DVD set will also include a Commentary Track on three of the season’s episodes, namely “King Corn,” “In God We Trust,” and “2162 Votes,” featuring the show’s producer, director, writer and cast members.

You will also find a Featurette on the release, entitled “C.J.Cregg: From Press Secretary to Chief of Staff.” It takes a look at Allison Janney’s Emmy-winning portrayal of C.J. Cregg during her years in the Bartlet Administration.

“West Wing: The Complete Sixth Season” is scheduled for release on May 9 and will carry a $59.95 suggested retail price.
