(March 18, 2009 – Burbank, CA) – In its 11th season, the doctors of the ER continue to face the trials and tribulations of saving lives while protecting their own. This season’s gripping stories follow the daily lives of doctors old and new as they learn how to be better physicians while learning even more about themselves. After a decade of heart-pounding, heart-stopping, and heart-warming plotlines, this perennial favorite returns once again as Warner Home Video gets set to release “ER: The Complete Eleventh Season” on DVD on July 14, 2009 for $49.98. Order due date is June 9, 2009. Created by best-selling author Michael Crichton, the eleventh season of “ER” drew over 12 million household viewers each week. It’s no wonder viewership increased by several million during this season, as the inevitable challenges facing the doctors of County General only seemed to intensify. While continuing to explore the themes of work and family, love and loss, Season 11 delves headfirst into some intense and unusual cases, like the aquarium worker with a live shark latched on or the fraternity brother with an arrow in his stomach after a stunt gone wrong. The season culminates with the dramatic departure of Dr. Carter (Noah Wyle), which rocks County General and its employees to the core. “‘ER: The Complete Eleventh Season’ features 22 emotionally charged and action packed episodes, continuing the stories of the doctors we have gotten to know and love for over a decade,” said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing. “Building upon the series’ magnificent close on network TV, we’re delighted to be releasing Season 11 to the millions who have loved and cherished ‘ER’ for so many years.” Season 11 of “ER” starred Noah Wyle, Maura Tierney, Mekhi Phifer, Goran Visnjic, Sherry Stringfield, Ming-Na, Parminder Nagra, Linda Cardellini, Shane West and Laura Innes. The executive producers are Christopher Chulack, Michael Crichton, John Wells and Dee Johnson. “ER” is from Constant c Productions, Amblin Television in association with Warner Bros. Television.
