“THE SARAH SILVERMAN PROGRAM: THE COMPLETE SERIES”
ALL 32 EPISODES OF THE COMEDY CENTRAL® CULT SHOW TO BE RELEASED IN A
7-DVD BOX SET BY SHOUT! FACTORY ON JUNE 19
Exclusive Box Set Includes Bonus Features
NEW YORK, May 21, 2012 – “Here it is all in one box y’all” says Sarah Silverman. June 19 will bring the release of a 7-DVD box set of the hilariously irreverent COMEDY CENTRAL show, “The Sarah Silverman Program,” distributed by Shout! Factory. “The Sarah Silverman Program: The Complete Series” set contains all 32 episodes from the show’s three seasons, as well as several new bonus features. Originally broadcast on COMEDY CENTRAL from 2007-2010, “The Sarah Silverman Program” stars Sarah Silverman, Laura Silverman (“Bob’s Burgers”), Brian Posehn (“The Five Year Engagement”), Steve Agee (“2 Broke Girls,” “Happy Endings”), and Jay Johnston (“Bob’s Burgers”).
Customers who pre-order “The Sarah Silverman Program: The Complete Series” from the Shout! Factory site will also receive “Songs of the Sarah Silverman Program,” a CD containing 99 musical and dialogue selections from the show. Bonus features include: a conversation with the writers and producers; digital and animated shorts; behind-the-scenes videos; audio commentaries with cast and crew; the cast and creators at 2007 Comic-Con; the original pilot; audition videos, and more.
Step into the adorably deranged world of Sarah Silverman as she goes about living her life, which on any given day can include taking in a homeless man, exploring her sexuality, suing “Home Alone,” the movie, or attempting to marry her dog Doug. Along with her sister Laura (Laura Silverman), geeky gay neighbors Brian and Steve (Brian Posehn and Steve Agee) and Officer Jay (Jay Johnston), Sarah manages to fall into some pretty unique, sometimes unsettling and always hilarious predicaments. But no matter how weird, wonky or just plain wrong things get, she always manages to land right side up in her upside-down world.
Praised by critics and beloved by fans, “The Sarah Silverman Program” was nominated for several Emmy®, GLAAD and WGA awards. Now, for the first time, all 32 episodes with all-new extras will be available in one complete DVD set.
