Ned and Stacey: S1 -- Sept. 20th

From TVShowsOnDVD.com:

"Thomas Haden Church (Wings) stars as Ned, and Debra Messing (Will & Grace) stars as Stacey. Ned and Stacey is a short-lived (46 episodes in 2 seasons) series from 1995 in which two people who can't stand each other get married in an arrangement that is meant to help advance each of their careers, but over the course of time they each come to realize that the other isn't so bad after all. The cast also includes Greg Germann of Ally McBeal and Harry Goz of the animated [adult swim] show Sealab 2021.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced the September 20th launch of Ned and Stacey - The 1st Season. 24 episodes come on 3 DVDs that run 535 minutes long. Full-frame video is accompanied by English sound with closed captioning. The cost is $39.95 list price. Cover art isn't available just yet, but stay tuned."

I don't know why, but this show often made me laugh. And Charlie Kaufman was a writer on it.

Heh, I fell in love with this show when the USA Network used to do reruns in the morning. I'm not going to claim that this is some unheralded classic but I'm ecstatic that the DVDs are on the way. Church's character is such a ridiculous bastard.

"Ned, you've ruined Stacey's life, cost me that contract, and almost got Eric fired! What've you got to say for yourself?"

*pause*

"Now... comes Miller time."

I too found this on USA in the morning and got hooked. The one thing that irritates me is that it is season one not a complete series. I mean it is only 46 30 minute episodes. I mean you could have a 4 or 5 disc set and be done instead of dragging it out over two sets.

Being that it's only 2 seasons and now a huge financial commitment, I may have to pick this series up. I was a big fan of this show and was really disappointed when it was cancelled.

Big fan of Debra Messing in this show. I will buy it for sure.
Much better than Jack & Karen, I mean Will & Grace, which I have yet to purchase.

huh? Why not release Church's bitingly funny 'Wings' before this?

I'll be picking this one up. I'd buy Wings if they'd ever release it in season sets too.

I agree. Wings should have gotten a release before this.

From DVDAnswers:

"Columbia has officially announced the first season of Ned and Stacey which stars Thomas Haden Church and Debra Messing. The three-disc set will be available to own from the 20th September this year, and should set you back around $39.95. Each of the episodes will be presented in 1.33:1 full frame, along with English Soundtracks. Extras will include commentary with series creator Michael Weithorn and some bonus previews."

Artwork is available there: http://www.dvdanswers.com/index.php?...7089&n=1&burl=

I think if Wings and Ned & Stacey had been from the same studio, they probably would have released Wings before this. Still, this is an entertaining show.

I'm all over this baby. Loved this show. Definitely watched it whenever I could when it was USA. I didn't really expect it to get released on DVD anytime soon though. But I should've seen it coming with Church and Messing's semi-popularity. Can't wait.

Another fan of this show who will buy this Season 1 set, but I did think it somewhat "jumped the shark" after
Spoiler:
Amanda and Ned bought the muffin shop.

I'm definitely picking up this DVD set. Hopefully it means they'll be releasing FLYING BLIND soon too, since it was another Fox sitcom that lasted two seasons and had a future star in Tea Leoni.

I was a big fan of this show at the time and will be picking up this set. Wonder what sort of extras will be on it?

Same here! The remaining episodes aren't on the same level as the first batch, but I always liked the continued descent into absurdity. Hopefully Sony sees fit to finish the series eventually.

It's playing on Comcast On-Demand right now so maybe that will generate some interest.
