This made-for-TV movie -- which became the pilot for a television series that, like this film, was inspired by Stephen King's novel of the same name -- gets a glossier-than-expected release on DVD. The Dead Zone (not to be confused with David Cronenberg's 1983 film, also based on King's novel) has been brought to disc in a letterboxed transfer at the aspect ratio of 1.85:1, which has been enhanced for anamorphic playback on widescreen monitors. The audio (in English only) has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, and along with English and Spanish subtitles, it features closed captioning in English. In addition to the main feature, the disc also includes a commentary track with contributions from leading man Anthony Michael Hall, the show's creator and head writer Michael Piller, and actors Nicole de Boer and Chris Bruno. The disc also includes a trailer, photos, and a sneak peek at what's in store for the show's second season.

i realy like this tv series becouse it is very exciting and entertaining. it is a must see for everyone.
The show is one of the best TV shows in years. The star is a down to earth, experienced, young actor whom we watched grow up in front of the camera. I recommend the show to everyone who is fascinated by the super natural and out of the ordinary. A must see! I was so excited to run into Mr Hall in a restaurant that I called him by his middle name! I wish I could apologize to him...
Have to admit, only just saw the first episode lastnight.(Feb. 9, 2003, on USA) I've always been a big fan of Steve McQueen, and have always liked Hall. Not only did I enjoy the show, but the likeness Anthony has to McQueen was amazing. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's noticed! Very good choice to use Hall in this series. I really enjoyed the mystery and suspense in it. It keeps you watching to see if you can figure things out on your own. Bravo!!! Looking forward to the shows from here on out.
The series is awesome. I hope it stays around for many seasons. I like the character Anthony Michael Hall plays. Look forward to seeing it weekly.
I absolutly love Athony Micheal Hall. I love how his charecter is in the movie he is a great person to all people. All I can say is Iam a big fan and I never miss one episode of his.
I COULD NOT BELIVE THAT THIS WAS THE SAME YOUNG MAN WHO PLAYED IN SIXTEEN CANDLES. GO ANTHONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent selection of character's and story lines.Hope to see more of Dana (News paper reporter)involved in future episode's from a male viewers perspective.
Not your usual cloned television entertainment. Drama, Mystery,Romance,Suspense, Must see TV.
I loved the pilot and could not wait to see the series. Started watching the show middle of session three. Went back and start from the beginning.
