The Latest Season Of The Outrageous SHOWTIME® Series
To Sizzle On DVD November 1

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – (October 19, 2011) – The provocative and popular series about the lustful misadventures of writer Hank Moody (David Duchovny) continues with the release of CALIFORNICATION: THE FOURTH SEASON on DVD November 1 from Showtime Networks, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment.  Headlining the “sexy, funny and original” (Chicago Sun-Times) show, David Duchovny electrifies in his portrayal of a talented writer whose salacious behavior causes his life to spin hilariously out of control.

After just being hauled off to jail for assaulting the boyfriend of his underage former fling, bad-boy novelist Hank Moody’s life is in complete ruins.  Hank’s longtime-love Karen (Natascha McElhone), and their daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin), are both furious with his recklessness.  Meanwhile, Hank’s legal woes continue as he faces statutory rape charges.  However, the scandal surrounding his latest book makes Hank a Hollywood hot commodity in more ways than one, and now Hank must navigate the complicated waters of Tinseltown while still trying to keep himself out of the slammer.  Also starring Evan Handler and Pamela Adlon, CALIFORNICATION: THE FOURTH SEASON, features guest star appearances from Rob Lowe, Carla Gugino, Zoë Kravitz, Michael Ealy and Fisher Stevens.
