The Guild: Seasons 1 & 2



New York, NY August 31, 2009 – In the wake of The Guild's conquest of Comic-Con 2009, New Video NYC is proud to announce the DVD release of Seasons 1 and 2 of this hilarious internet sensation. The Guild panel won notice as the #5 most buzzed-about event at Comic-Con (io9.com) with the revelation that fan favorite Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation) will join Season 3. The Guild music video unveiled at Comic-Con for the song Do You Want to Date My Avatar became the #1 music video on iTunes across all genres. On the heels of the Season 3 premiere on XBoxLive on August 25, this epic DVD packed with the first two seasons, bonus features and an exclusive insert comes to retail shelves September 29, 2009.

THE GUILD's creator and star, Felicia Day (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), has taken the digital world by storm, with over one million followers on Twitter and membership in Hollywood Reporter's Digital Power 50 this year. Boasting over 25 million worldwide views, THE GUILD has firmly established itself as one of the most popular episodic comedies on the World Wide Web. The series has over 100 thousand subscribers on YouTube, as well as SXSW, YouTube, Yahoo! Web Series and three Streamy Awards to its name. Joss Whedon credits The Guild as the inspiration for his blockbuster Internet film Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

Crowned A RARE JEWEL IN THE WEB TV WORLD, by the Los Angeles Times, The Guild is the story of Cyd Serman (a.k.a. Codex), who has hit rock bottom. Dumped by her boyfriend, her employer and her therapist, she drowns her sorrows the way any modern girl would—in the world of online gaming. But after a fellow player mistakes their in-game rapport for real-world romance and shows up on her doorstep, Codex brings all of the members of her online guild face-to-face...with very awkward results.

Named one of THE NET'S BEST SERIAL SHOWS by Rolling Stone, THE GUILD 2-DVD set includes all 22 episodes from Seasons 1 and 2, along with loads of exclusive bonus material not seen on the Internet.

EXCLUSIVE BONUS MATERIAL INCLUDES:

* Special Insert: Gaming Glossary and Note from Felicia Day
