BURBANK, Calif., March 10, 2006 – From the Studio that brought audiences “Remember The Titans,” Walt Disney Pictures presents a Jerry Bruckheimer Film Production, GLORY ROAD, debuting on DVD and UMD™ on June 6. This inspiring, exhilarating film is the true story of legendary basketball coach Don Haskins and his 1966 NCAA championship team, the first all African-American squad to win the national title. The DVD features the Alicia Keys music video “Sweet Music;” never-before-seen deleted scenes; “More Than A Game: Legacy Of The Bear” – with commentary by Coach Haskins; “Surviving Practice” featuring NBA all-star Tim Hardaway; extended interviews with former Haskins players; and audio commentaries with super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer and the film’s director and writers.

Josh Lucas (“Stealth,” “Sweet Home Alabama”) stars as Hall of Fame coach Don Haskins, in the true story of the team that changed the game of basketball forever. In the 1960’s, Texas Western (now the University of Texas El Paso) hires Haskins to coach a small-time, losing basketball program. Through vigorous recruiting, Haskins assembles a line-up with many African-Americans, a novelty in college basketball. With a grueling coaching regime and tough love, Haskins molds his recruits into a promising team. Amidst the country’s burgeoning civil-rights movement, the players and coaches endure raciallycharged insults as they go forward in the national college tournaments. Haskins fields the first all African-American starting line-up in a championship game, and together they defy the odds and win the 1966 NCAA Championship. Their courage and dedication change the face of college basketball and national sports for all time.

Available for $29.99 (S.R.P.) on DVD (available in separate full and widescreen editions) and on UMD™ for PSP™ (widescreen), from Walt Disney Home Entertainment and Jerry Bruckheimer Productions.

GLORY ROAD’s superb cast includes Derek Luke (“Friday Night Lights,” Antwone Fisher”) and Jon Voight (“National Treasure,” Academy Award® winner, Best Actor, “Coming Home” 1978 and “Midnight Cowboy” 1969.)
