In the heat of the summer, Arts Alliance America is proud to announce the long-awaited cult favorite, TV Guide Presents The Crow: Stairway To Heaven- The Complete Series on DVD. Merging action, fantasy and romance into a compelling tapestry, all 22 hours of the original episodes have been collected into a 5 disk DVD set and will hit stores July 24, 2007 for a suggested retail price of $39.95.
Bonus features on TV Guide Presents The Crow: Stairway To Heaven – The Complete Series include an audio commentary from series star Mark Dacascos and Executive Producer Bryce Zabel, a gag reel, the original dailies from three of the episodes, selections from the show’s original soundtrack, the Pilot Script, all 22 episode scripts, the original Bible and episode descriptions written by Bryce Zabel, a photo gallery and more.
We’re really excited to be releasing this fantastic program, said Joe Amodei, President of Arts Alliance America. We have heard from many fans who are thrilled that this cult favorite is being released on DVD. We have found some wonderful, never-before-seen special features that we know the fans will love.
“We set out to make a series that was faithful to the material that inspired it, but still was accessible to an entire new audience,” said Bryce Zabel, executive producer and creator of The Crow: Stairway to Heaven. “It was a challenge finding that balance but fans of the original comic book and feature film soon joined with new television fans to make the series a success. Those of us who worked on it are thrilled that those same fans will now be able to watch it in order, at their own pace, without pre-emptions and schedule changes.”

Recently heard from a representative from Hart Sharp Video and a long with the previously mentioned commentary from Bryce and Mark on the first two episodes and a “making of”, we can also look forward to a gag reel (supposed to be pretty funny), a large amount of dailies and more photos and possible other extras. They are also trying to get permission to reprint some articles on Mark that appeared over the past few years.
All in all, this is shaping up to be an excellent release for fans of the show. This is great news. In the past, THE CROW and DVD have been synonymous with disappointment. Perhaps that tide is turning.
Recently, Frank took a little vacation time and headed up to sunny Seattle. His travels first took him by one Kona Kitchen which is owned by Yuji Okumoto (Pestilence) from THE CROW: WICKED PRAYER. Yuji wasn’t at the restaurant because he was in LA filming a documentary and he was flying out to Japan on Monday. On the walls of the restaurant he had a lot of autographed pictures including The Rock, as well as fellow WICKED PRAYER cast mates Tito Ortiz (Famine), Danny Trejo (Harold), and Edward Furlong (Jimmy Cuervo) as well as Crow alum Mark Dacascos (Eric Draven from the series THE CROW: STAIRWAY to HEAVEN). The food was excellent and reasonably priced especially for Seattle where prices can be a bit high. Frank had the Aloha burger with seasoned fries. A common problem in the northwest is soggy fries or overcooked fries, not so here, they were cooked just right,
Below you will see his pictures from WICKED PRAYER as well as Mark Dacascos. If you are ever up in the Seattle area, definitely give Kona Kitchen a visit. Click on the image to view the full size.
One of the last stops Frank made was to the grave of Bruce and Brandon Lee. The atmosphere was solemn. There was a piece of a VHS box from THE CROW setting on Brandon’s headstone. Another ironic symbol, a crow was flying around the area cawing. Along with the pictures taken at Kona Kitchen there is one of the gravesite. Please click on the image to view the full size.
