Here is the synopsis for the Vegas episode (more pics here):
Virginia, Burt, Jimmy and Sabrina head to Las Vegas to attend Virginia’s cousin Delilah’s (Amy Sedaris) wedding. Virginia is embarrassed that she didn’t have the big wedding that her snooty cousin will have, so Burt attempts to make it up to her. Meanwhile, Jimmy tries to make a move on Sabrina who wants to go wild in Vegas.
Fox has released a bunch of new promos for season two in the last few days, including the photos from episode two, “Sabrina Has Money” (<- see link) and a couple of new behind-the-scenes featurettes with cast interviews (below).
TVLine reports that Burt’s parents have been cast:
If bionic man Steve Austin and Mrs. Partridge had a baby, he’d apparently look an awful lot like Burt Chance.
TVLine has learned exclusively that 1970s TV icons Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man) and Shirley Jones (The Partridge Family) will appear this fall on Fox’s Raising Hope, playing Burt’s parents. So come on, get happy!
Here is the press release for the season one DVD, also out on Tuesday, Sept. 20, and available on Amazon.com.
RAISING HOPE SEASON 1
The Unexpected Bundle of Joy
Arrives on DVD September 20th
Los Angeles, CA – Life at the Chance’s will never be the same when Jimmy comes home with an unexpected gift. Follow one ill-equipped family as they navigate through the pleasures and annoyances of raising a baby. The Emmy Award nominated series RAISING HOPE Season 1 comes to DVD on September 20th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment packed with exclusive featurettes, deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel, commentaries and the un-aired pilot never shown on television.
Created by Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia, Raising Hope stars Lucas Neff, Martha Plimpton, Garret Dillahunt and Shannon Woodward. Cloris Leachman guest-stars as Maw Maw.
A one night stand becomes a life-long commitment when 23-year-old Jimmy Chance inadvertently impregnates a wanted felon and decides to raise Hope (aka Princess Beyonce) on his own. Jimmy, together with his family – his Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman), his mother Virginia (Martha Plimpton), and his father Burt (Garret Dillahunt) – face play dates, amusing family photo shoots, rock star dreams, vasectomies and much more in this uproariously irreverent, critically acclaimed first season of Raising Hope.
RAISING HOPE Season 1 DVD is available on September 20th and the ARP is $29.99.
