CENTURY CITY, Calif. – Faith will be restored and souls will be saved when the vampire cursed with a human soul returns to fight demons on the dark side in the “Angel” Collector’s Set DVD arriving October 30, 2007 from Fox Home Entertainment. For the first time ever, all five seasons of the hit supernatural drama will be packaged together in a 30-disc special collector’s box uniquely designed for the ultimate fan. The collection features all 110 episodes, a personally signed letter to fans from creator Joss Whedon and a collectible companion booklet. The sci-fi action-thriller, created by Joss Whedon as a “spin-off” to the international cult sensation “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” became a wildly successful series among critics and fans alike.

The series also stars Saturn Award winners for Best Supporting Actor and Actress James Marsters (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer”) as Vampire Spike and Amy Acker (“Alias”), as Winifred, the beautiful scientist and detective who has become a trusted member of Angel’s team. The series also stars Alexis Denisof (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer”) as demon hunter Wesley Wyndam-Price, J. August Richards (“Conviction”) as the street savvy vampire turned take-no-prisoner lawyer and Andy Hallett (Geppetto’s Secret) as the witty and charismatic karaoke-singing demon Lome.

Between the pervasive evil and countless temptations lurking beneath the city’s glittering façade, Los Angeles proves to be the ideal location for a fallen vampire who has the mission to save lost souls and in turn redeem his own by restoring hope to those locked in a losing battle with their own demons.

"J. August Richards (“Conviction”) as the street savvy vampire turned take-no-prisoner lawyer"

Um... did Fox actually get this wrong in their own press release? Anybody bothering to read this knows that Gun was a vampire hunter, which is quite different from being a vampire. That's just embarrassing. It's called proofreading, people!
