“Uprising” to hit shelves Dec. 18

Though some viewers may have missed it when it aired against the World Series and the Emmys on Nov. 4, viewers now have a second shot a seeing NBC‘s recent WWII miniseries Uprising, which is set to hit stores on VHS and DVD on Dec. 18.

The DVD version of the miniseries–which tells the true story of the 1939 Jewish uprising against the Nazis in Poland’s Warsaw Ghetto–will sport some impressive new features. A new “Making Of” documentary, entitled Breaking Down the Walls, reveals what the cast and crew had to go through to make the film authentic, and audio commentaries by director/producer Jon Avnet and stars Leelee Sobieski, David Schwimmer, Hank Azaria and Jon Voight are also included.

“This film has been seven years in the making,” said Avnet in a recent press release promoting Uprising. “It has been a very, very long journey and a very enriching one personally.”
