NBC Universal has announced the "Heroes
World Tour," which will kick off the "Heroes" season one DVD and HD DVD release. The cast will embark on a personal tour as production resumes on the drama's second season.
The news follows last week's announcement that unveiled a multi-faceted, 360-degree marketing campaign shared by Nissan and NBC on behalf of "Heroes."
"Heroes" will be propelled into stores on August 28 for the DVD and HD-DVD launch of its heroic first season in an elaborate seven-disc set loaded with bonus features, including 50 deleted scenes and the never aired 73-minute premiere episode. In late August, cast members will continue the "Heroes World Tour" with personal appearances in various countries.
