The first season of the offbeat HBO comedy series is planned for Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, HBO says 'Enlightened: The Complete First Season' is coming to Blu-ray on January 8.

40-year-old Amy Jellicoe has a dramatic transformation inspiring her to adopt a new attitude of inner peace and healing. Unfortunately, her new enlightened outlook is unwelcome and even threatening to her co-workers and loved ones. A unique blend of comedy and drama, Enlightened stars Academy Award® and Emmy® nominee Laura Dern, who won a Golden Globe® for Best Actress in a Comedy for her performance. Dern also executive produces the series along with Mike White, who co-stars, writes and directs.

During its debut, the show was praised by critics as "the most interesting and ambitious series of the fall season" (The Los Angeles Times) and "a gorgeously filmed, perfectly written and flawlessly performed masterpiece" (E! Online).

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: "Inside the Episodes" summaries & audio commentaries with the cast and crew.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $49.99.
