Hollywood. The city of dreams. Where everything has a price, and if you need to get something "fixed" there’s only one man you call. Showtime’s Original Series "Ray Donovan" Season One starring Golden Globe nominee Liev Schreiber is one of the last year’s biggest hits, and now that it’s available on Blu-ray, you too can see what everyone is talking about. Smoothly and richly played, Schreiber’s title character is easily the coolest character on television since "Mad Men’s" John Draper. Donovan lifts the lid off of Tinsel Town and reveals a side that most entourages wouldn’t survive.

Ray Donovan is charged with keeping Hollywood’s rich and famous "safe." If you find yourself followed by an adoring fan (read: stalker), or you wake up next to a dead one-night-stand, Donovan has a plan to clean up the scene, or turn it into the latest story on TMZ, but even Ray and his team of professionals can’t keep everything under wraps - especially at home. And when his dad gets paroled, (played by Golden Globe Winner Jon Voight) it’s only a matter of time before it all starts crumbling around his ears.

With so many new offerings on the air vying for audience attention, Showtime’s "Ray Donovan" is hard to pass up. It’s no surprise that it is one of the network’s most highly regarded series and easily one of its most anticipated shows returning this year. And although the 3-disc set is thin on bonus content - sparse really - all 12 episodes of Season One are available for binge-watching on Blu-ray. Get into "Ray Donovan" now just in time for the upcoming Season Two.

"Ray Donovan: Season One"
available now on Blu-ray and DVD for $76.99
from Showtime Entertainment.
