Paramount Home Media Distribution used the backdrop of this year’s Comic-Con International gathering in San Diego to reveal an Oct. 7 release date for DVD and Blu-ray sets of the Showtime hit series, Penny Dreadful: Season One.

Bonus goodies included the first two episodes of Ray Donovan: Season One (an outstanding series in its own right) and nine production featurettes, including one titled “What is a Penny Dreadful?”
Also added to the release calendar this week is CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, Director Charles Stone III’s bio pic on the life and times of the Hip Hop trio TLC. The street date for the DVD debut is Oct. 21.
