After fleeing his North Carolina hometown, washed-up major-league pitcher Kenny Powers spent a soul-searching season in Mexico as "La Flama Blanca" - and ended up returning to the States a changed man. Or is he? Find out when Eastbound & Down: The Complete Third Season debuts on Blu-ray Disc ($39.98), DVD ($29.98) and Digital Download with over an hour of uproarious bonus features on December 4, 2012.
Powers, whose boorish behavior and fading fastball led to a spectacular career flame-out now finds himself back on the mound in the USA. Picking up a year after season two, the third season finds Kenny in action on the "Redneck Riviera" (aka Myrtle Beach, SC), somehow resurrecting his baseball career by becoming the closer for the minor-league Myrtle Beach Mermen. Even as he tries to pass himself off as the "King of Myrtle Beach," Kenny struggles to come to terms with growing older and accepting the responsibilities of being a new father.
Eastbound & Down: The Complete Third Season on BD and DVD feature hysterical bonus content including:
- Outtakes: Blooper Reel
