The comedy co-starring Kristen Bell, Kathy Bates, and Peter Dinklage will be available on Blu-ray in July.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal will be releasing 'The Boss' on Blu-ray on July 26.
Melissa McCarthy stars as Michelle Darnell, a titan of industry who is sent to prison for insider trading. After doing her time, Michelle emerges, ready to rebrand herself as America’s latest sweetheart, but not everyone she steamrolled is so quick to forgive and forget. With nowhere to go and no one to scam, Michelle is forced to move in with former assistant Claire (Kristen Bell – Frozen, “House of Lies”) and her young daughter, Rachel.
