Oscar® winner Geena Davis- who scooped the Best Actress gong at the Golden Globes for her gripping performance as first US president MacKenzie Allen - heads an all star line up, including Donald Sutherland, in the series dubbed by critics as the 'female West Wing' when Commander in Chief : Series One comes to DVD on 29th January 2007 from Buena Vista Home Entertainment.
Currently being showcased on More 4 - The Best of the U.S, alongside hard-hitting drama NYPD Blue and comedy, Curb Your Enthusiasm, the first series of the hit US drama is an undiscovered TV gem.

Tensions explode between MacKenzie and her nemesis, Speaker of the House Nathan Templeton, played by Emmy® award winner Sutherland, who feels cheated out of the presidency role.

While she goes where no woman has gone before, her husband Rod struggles with the pressures of being 'First Gentleman' and her three children learn to deal with their mother's new role as leader of the Free World. It's a tale of a powerful woman in a man's world. But can MacKenzie really have it all?
