Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the HBO original movie Bad Education on DVD Sept. 8. A Blu-ray will be available through the Warner Archive Collection. The movie is already available for digital sellthrough.
The darkly comical film is inspired by the true story of a multi-million dollar embezzlement scheme that rocked the public education system in Roslyn, New York. Hugh Jackman stars as superintendent Frank Tassone and Allison Janney plays assistant superintendent Pam Gluckin, who reign over a popular Long Island school district on the verge of the nation’s top spot, spurring record college admissions and soaring property values. Between them, they racked up over $11.2 million dollars in extravagant personal expenses.
The cast also includes Geraldine Viswanathan, Alex Wolff, Rafael Casal, Annaleigh Ashford and Ray Romano.
Extras include the featurettes “Based on a True Story,” a detailed breakdown of the true story that inspired Bad Education; “The Perception of Perfection,” in which Jackman discusses playing the superintendent; “Hugh Jackman & Allison Janney: Virtual Conversation,” in which the stars discuss their performances and provide insight into the real-life characters they portrayed.
