BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - August 29, 2007) - The mystery continues when "LOST: The Complete Third Season, The Unexplored Experience" comes to DVD and Blu-ray High-Def on December 11, 2007 from Buena Vista Home Entertainment. Both collections feature all 23 episodes of Season Three of ABC-TV's hit series, which was recently nominated for six Primetime Emmy® awards, plus over six hours of bonus features. The Blu-ray™ collection also includes an exclusive, interactive BD-Java feature that reveals truths from each of the show's critically acclaimed seasons. Either way, it's the perfect way to catch up on what's been happening on the island before the highly-anticipated Season Four premiere.

"LOST: The Complete Third Season, The Unexplored Experience" is a must-have for fans of the two-time Best Drama honoree (2005 Emmy® Award, 2006 Golden Globe®). Though rescue still eludes the Flight 815 crash survivors, suspense, action and danger are found everywhere on the island. In Season Three, as the power of the island to both heal and destroy comes into sharp focus, the lines between good and evil are blurred and loyalties are challenged when the survivors of the crash become tangled within the lives of the Others. Terry O'Quinn ("John Locke") and Michael Emerson ("Ben Linus") each received 2007 Primetime Emmy® nominations as Best Supporting Actor for their outstanding work as rivals forced into an uneasy alliance on Season Three.

Released day-and-date on seven-disc DVD and six-disc Blu-ray High-Def collections -- a first for a Buena Vista TV series -- "LOST: The Complete Third Season, The Unexplored Experience" allows viewers to delve into the secrets behind the series. Bonus features include never-before-seen "Lost Flashbacks," "Lost in A Day," which shows 24 hours of production, and a deeper dive into "The World of the Others," where cast and producers reveal more about the island's mysterious inhabitants. It also features a behind-the-scenes look at 10 episodes with "Lost on Location," deleted scenes, bloopers and more.
