The Amazon original series is making a run for Blu-ray in September. You can pre-order the show here

In an early announcement to retailers, Amazon is preparing 'Alpha House: Season 1' for Blu-ray on September 16.

Emmy award winner John Goodman ('Roseanne,' 'Argo') stars in 'Alpha House,' an inside-the-beltway comedy series from Garry Trudeau (Pulitzer-Prize winning creator of Doonesbury) about four Republican senators all living together in one Capitol Hill townhouse. Cantankerous senator Gil John Biggs (Goodman) makes winning look easy, but that's because he's never had a real fight for his seat. When former rival Digger Mancusi announces he's running, the race gets real. His roommates have their own set of issues: Former Mormon missionary Louis Laffer (Matt Malloy) has his masculinity questioned when he runs against a macho man’s man. Ethically challenged Robert Bettencourt (Clark Johnson) worries that his home state of Pennsylvania is turning against him. And then there’s the not-so-distinguished gentleman who makes this a full house: Florida senator Andy Guzman (Mark Consuelos) – freshly divorced, with presidential ambitions as over the top as his frequent sexual adventures. Season one features a roll call of high-profile guest stars including Bill Murray ('Saturday Night Live'), Wanda Sykes ('Curb Your Enthusiasm'), Cynthia Nixon ('Sex and the City'), Amy Sedaris ('Strangers With Candy') and Stephen Colbert ('The Colbert Report'). The first season of 'Alpha House' will win your vote.

Specs and supplements have not been detailed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $49.99.
