    WASHINGTON, April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Acorn Media proudly announces the home
 video release of the boldest science fiction series on television, LEXX.  A
 highly rated SCI FI Channel original program in the same vein as Farscape,
 LEXX combines outrageous humor with darkly sensual styling that sets it apart
 from the rest of the genre.  Brought to life by "stunning digital effects" (TV
 Guide), this irreverent series is broadcast in 100 countries and has attracted
 a huge global fan base as well as national media attention -- particularly for
 the show's alluring female star, Xenia Seeberg.  LEXX lets loose on home video
 with the May 29th day & date releases of S2-V1 (Series 2 Video Set 1)
 featuring the first four episodes from the second season and S2-V2 (Series 2
 Video Set 2) featuring the next four episodes.  Available as a VHS twin pack
 or DVD single, each title retails for $29.95 with a running time of 192
 minutes.
     Both formats feature scenes never seen by an American audience and
 exclusive interviews with the cast and crew.  DVD bonus features include
 behind-the-scenes "making of" footage, "Rated LEXX" segments, cast and
 character bios, LEXX trivia and English and French language tracks.
     This innovative series follows the adventures of a crew of misfits
 exploring the heavens in a stolen spacecraft, the LEXX -- a genetically
 engineered and mechanically enhanced insect the size of Manhattan.  The crew
 includes Stanley Tweedle (Brian Downey), a cowardly ex-security guard; Xev
 Bellringer (Xenia Seeberg), a half-human/half-lizard love slave; Kai (Michael
 McManus), an undead assassin; and 790 (Jeffrey Hirschfield), the head of a
 robotic drone.
     With offices in suburban Washington, D.C. and London, Acorn Media
 Publishing Inc. is a home video distributor of high-quality science fiction,
 British drama, mystery, comedy and special interest programming.  The latest
