Join one of television’s most irreverent families, the Gallaghers, as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released another season of the hit Showtime series, Shameless, on Blu-Ray and DVD. Shameless: The Complete Eighth Season brings the Gallagher clan together for another scandalous season featuring 12 highly entertaining episodes, plus bonus content, including two new featurettes and deleted scenes. From Emmy®-winning executive producer John Wells (ER, The West Wing) and Warner Bros. Television, Shameless stars Oscar®-nominated actor William H. Macy (Fargo, Door to Door) as Frank Gallagher, the outspoken, alcoholic, single father of six industrious and independent kids from Chicago’s South Side.
The Gallaghers are finally on an upswing in season eight! Frank (William H. Macy), tries to become a contributing member of society. Fiona (Emmy Rossum) finds success as a landlord. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) struggles to stay sober while Ian (Cameron Monaghan) takes up a cause. Debbie (Emma Kenney) tries life as a single working mom, while Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) gets creative finding tuition money after losing his military school scholarship. Meanwhile, Kev (Steve Howey) and V (Shanola Hampton) wrestle with Svetlana (Isidora Goreshter) at The Alibi.
“Since its debut, Shameless has delighted viewers with its endearing characters, captivating storylines and powerful acting performances. For the past eight years, television audiences have watched the Gallagher kids grow up and deal with tough life situations in their own remarkable, ingenious ways. Fans have grown to love the Gallagher clan and have remained loyal and devoted viewers,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. She added, “We’re pleased to bring the eighth season of this outstanding series to consumers.”
Based on the long-running, award-winning British series, Shameless was developed for American television by John Wells and created by Paul Abbott (State of Play) and made its U.S. debut on Showtime January 9, 2011. Season eight premiered to over 3 million total viewers. Shameless is Showtime’s #1 series across all key Adult Demos (out of 9 series).*
