Family Tree DVD

From the mind that brought you This is Spinal Tap and Best in Show comes an eccentric new comedy about one man’s mission to find himself, one relative at a time, as Family Tree arrives on DVD from 23 September 2013 from Universal Pictures (UK).

This off-the-wall hit HBO series is comprised of 10 x half hour, single camera episodes that give the show trademark spoof documentary awkwardness, with added satirical humour.

The Chadwick family are brought to life by largely improvised performances from an ensemble case of comedy greats including Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids, The Sapphires, The IT Crowd) as protagonist Tom Chadwick, Tom Bennett (Midsummer Murders, Eastenders) as his best friend; BAFTA winner Nina Conti (For Your Consideration, Holby City) as his quirky sister Bea; and Michael McKean (Murder She Wrote, Homeland, The Adventures of Superman) as his British soap loving father.

Supporting roles from Ed Begley, Jr. (Pineapple Express, This is Spinal Tap, Arrested Development) as Dr. Al Chadwick, Tom’s third uncle and Fred Willard (Best in Show, Modern Family, Everybody Loves Raymond) as Mike Morton Al’s crude neighbour.

Family Tree follows the unusual life of 30 year old Tom Chadwick, who has recently lost his job and girlfriend and inherits a mysterious box of belongings from a great aunt that he never met. Deciding to embark on his own journey of self discovery he starts investigating his family lineage and uncovers a whole world of unusual stories and characters and a growing sense of who he is and who his family are.

Family Tree features side-splitting bonus features including hilarious deleted scenes, a brilliant soundtrack composed by Christopher Guest and the full spoof television programmes used in the show.

This must-watch series will have you laughing out loud at blind dates, puppet monkeys and pantomime horses, as you embark upon Tom Chadwick’s bizarre mission to find his long lost ancestors as Family Tree comes on DVD from 13 May 2013 courtesy of Universal Pictures (UK).
