Arrives August 24th, 2010

New York, NY July 15, 2010 – From the producers of Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries comes this thrilling mystery based on The New York Times best-selling novels by Kate Brian. PRIVATE was produced by Alloy Entertainment and launched on the Alloy Digital platform, Teen.com, following overwhelming fan requests to turn the successful books into a TV series. After receiving an impressive 14 million views during its limited premiere run on the web, PRIVATE has since been reedited into a film-length feature for DVD.

The film follows the story of Reed Brennan, who can’t believe her good luck when she’s accepted to exclusive Easton Academy. Life on campus is an endless parade of cute boys, parties, and special privileges—but nothing at Easton is quite what it seems. With a dangerous romance, shocking discoveries and dark secrets ahead of her, Reed will be lucky if she survives her first semester.

PRIVATE ($19.95) is packed with bonus features, including interviews with the cast and screenwriters, a sneak peek at the upcoming The Book of Spells, a Private prequel, and much more.
