(September 15, 2009 – Burbank, CA) – Season 12 of the multiple Emmy® Award-winning “ER” continues to explore the inner workings of a public hospital emergency room and the lives of its dedicated doctors who are faced with life-and-death decisions on a daily basis. After a decade of heart pounding episodes, this perennial favorite returns once again as Warner Home Video releases “ER: The Complete Twelfth Season” on DVD on January 12, 2010 for $49.98. Order due date is December 8, 2009. As the drama at the ER increases, so does the weekly household viewership. Over 10 million viewers tuned into the twelfth season of “ER” every week to see the shocking challenges faced by the doctors at the County General. This season Dr. Victor Celemente arrives with loads of talent but a questionable past, no-nonsense Eve Spellman takes charge as the new nurse manager and hunky paramedic Tony Gates proves he’s more than just good looks. Spiraling drama and suspense start to take over the lives of “ER” veterans as Lockhart and Kovac share unexpected news, Gallant comes home from Iraq to be with Neela and Pratt goes to Darfur to work with Carter. Season 12 also brings burn victims, gunshot victims and assault victims to the County General and keeps the “ER” staff relentlessly on edge. “We are thrilled to release the latest installment in the ‘ER’ collection with ‘ER: The Complete Twelfth Season,’” said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing. “Fans of the show will have the chance to look back on their favorite moments from the County General and the doctors they have come to know and love.” Season 12 of “ER” starred Laura Innes, Mekhi Phifer, Goran Visnjic, Maura Tierney, Sherry Stringfield, Parminder Nagram, Linda Cardellini, Shane West and Scott Grimes.
