Fox sets plans for ‘Glee’ DVD

Show's first 13 eps out by end of year

Hoping to capitalize on early fan frenzy for new music-driven drama “Glee,” 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will release the show’s first 13 episodes on DVD at the end of the year.

“‘Glee’ Season One: Road to Sectionals” will hit stores Dec. 29, just weeks after Fox wraps up broadcasting the show’s first 13 episodes.

The home entertainment unit still plans to release another DVD containing the show’s full first season sometime in mid-2010.

Contrary to earlier word coming out of the studio, there will not be vouchers included for consumers who buy both the part one DVD and the eventual full-season DVD.

Studio and net hope the 13-episode set will help placate fans of the show – who call themselves “Gleeks” – when “Glee” heads off the air at the start of the year. Show returns with its remaining original episodes in the spring.

Beyond “Glee’s” first 13 episodes, the DVD will include the director’s cut of the pilot episode, behind-the-scenes features, cast audition videos and music performances from the show.
