Minneapolis, MN (June 6, 2017) - Mill Creek Entertainment, the leading value entertainment studio will release the idolized 90s series The Secret World Of Alex Mack on DVD August 1, 2017.

Alex Mack (Larisa Oleynik) is your average teenage girl, simply trying to make it through her transition to junior high school. She stands alongside her mother, father, and older sister in the fictional town of Paradise Valley, CA. After enduring her first day of junior high school, Alex treks home...where she is almost hit by a truck leaving a chemical plant. The incident leaves Alex drenched in a mysterious chemical named GC-161. She soon realizes this substance implemented a strange effect on her: she is overwhelmed with the discovery that she has developed superpowers, with both positive and negative consequences - she must keep her powers under wraps. She gets by with the help of her older sister Annie (Meredith Bishop) and best friend Raymond (Darris Love) to remain under-the-radar, thus where family relationships, comedy, and science fiction come together to greatness.

"We are excited to finally bring out this iconic series on DVD in its entirety," states Jeff Hayne, VP of Content Acquisition for Mill Creek Entertainment. "There is so much nostalgia for the 90s in current pop culture, that parents who loved this show as teens can share this beloved series with their kids."

The series was joined by multiple actors, including Benjamin Kimball Smith as Alex and Ray's close friend, Hilary Salvatore as one of Alex's school rivals, Alexis Fields as another close friend to Alex, Will Estes a boy with family trauma related to GC-161, and Jessica Alba as Alex's crush's girlfriend and main school rival. Additionally, Alex Mack, or Larisa Oleynik, has gone forward starring on beloved television series' Boy Meets World and Mad Men, the movies 10 Things I Hate About You and The Baby-Sitters Club, and can currently be seen on stage in the off-Broadway musical Baghdaddy.

The Secret World Of Alex Mack initially aired on Nickelodeon from 1994-1998. Created by Ken Lipman and Tommy Lynch, the series was nominated for eight different Young Artist awards, and had maintained a cult following since leaving the airwaves almost 20 years ago.
