(April 14, 2008 – Burbank, CA) – On the 10th anniversary of his death, celebrate Frank Sinatra by exploring his life with the remarkable award-winning television production “Sinatra (The Miniseries),” arriving on DVD May 13, 2008 from Warner Home Video. Executive produced by his daughter, Tina Sinatra, this incredible recounting of Sinatra’s life features his own singing and some astonishing personal revelations. “Sinatra” originally aired on CBS in 1992 and won multiple Emmy® and Golden Globe® awards including “Best Made for TV Movie” (Golden Globe 1993). Now on DVD for the very first time, this two-disc DVD collector’s set is priced to own at $19.98 SRP, with an order due date of April 8, 2008. “Sinatra” covers more than 20 years of Sinatra’s life, beginning with his spirited boyhood in Hoboken, NJ, and ending with his 1974 return from retirement. With an uncanny likeness to the legend himself, Phillip Casnoff (“Law & Order: SVU”), won a Golden Globe® nomination for his performance. Oscar® winner Olympia Dukakis (“Moonstruck,” “Steel Magnolias”) portrays his mother, Dolly, while Gina Gershon (“Ugly Betty,” “Showgirls”) plays Sinatra’s wife, Nancy. Oscar®-nominee Marcia Gay Harden (“Mystic River,” “Pollock”) plays the luminous Ava Gardner. More than two dozen Sinatra standards grace this lavish production and most are from the original master recordings by the “Chairman of the Board” himself. “'Sinatra’ is a superb production about an amazingly talented man -- one of our national treasures,” said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV Marketing. “This DVD provides a unique look at Sinatra’s life and is an essential addition to any music fan’s collection.” Songs included on “Sinatra” are “That’s Life,” “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,” “I’ll Never Smile Again,” “I Fall in Love Too Easily,” “That Old Black Magic,” “All Thy Way,” “It Was A Very Good Year,” “Come Fly With Me” and “New York, New York.” With operations in 90 international territories Warner Home Video, a Warner Bros.
